Two Social Sciences Tours Slated 

Pretty, shapely and glamorous Jeanie Marler, junior 
speech major of Alexandria, is shown getting ready to 
blast off for the Fourth of July holidays. The sky rocket 
which she is getting ready to set off measures seven feet 
tall; Miss Marler is five feet, two inches tall. The sky 
rocket is a dud; Miss Marler is not. (photo by Lamar Bates)

Dr. Stokes Named 
New Dean of A&S 

Recently named by President 
John S. Kyser as Dean of the 
School of Arts and Sciences was 
Dr. George A. Stokes, professor of 
Geography and Geology at North- 
western for 14 years. 

A native of Winnfield, Dr. Stokes 
attended Winnfield High and re- 
ceived his B.A. from NSC in 1942. 
He has done graduate work at 
Louisiana State University, receiv- 
ing his MA. in 1949, and his Ph.D.

commented that it was too early 
to plan future actions. Dr. Stokes 
replaces Dean Clarence K. Dugdale. 

Star Disappears; 
No Trace Found 

After being cast as "Punk," a 
starring role in the play "Years 
Ago," "Oboe" the only feline in 
the play, ran away from it all. 

After the first two rehearsals 
of the play, which was presented 
by the Northwestern State Col- 
lege Summer Theatre Work- 
shop, June 25, 26, and 27, she 

At try-outs for the part, 
"Oboe" was judged best suited 
for the role over a Siamese 
named "Saki," and a Persian 
named "Curley." "Oboe," a lit- 
tle gray tiger cat, out-classed 
the other cats, because they 
were too classy. 

"Tot Petit," a yellow tiger cat, 
"Oboe's" understudy filled in 
during rehearsals and since 
"Oboe" could not be found, took 
over the part during the play. 

One Tour Will Feature U.S., Hawaii; 
Western Europe Tour Also Planned 

by Carrie Nicklas, Assistant Editor 

The Northwestern State College Department of Social 
Studies plans two summer tours in August. The 13th Annual 
Educational Tour of the United States features the southwest 

and offers an optional side 
trip to Hawaii. A program of 
annual overseas tours is inaug- 
urated with a tour of Western 

Graduate and undergraduate cre- 
dit in geography and/or social stu- 
dies may be earned. The tours are 
also open to other interested per- 
sons. Credits of three to six hours 
may be earned by undergraduates 
and three hours for graduates. 

Student Aid Bill 
Signed by Governor 

The Louisiana Legislature at its 
recent session enacted into law a 
student aid bill which would per- 
mit college students to borrow 
money. Gov. Davis signed the bill 
June 19. 

The bill, which Rep. Jasper K. 
Smith of Caddo Parish and Sen. 
Michael O'Keffe of New Orleans 
co-authored in the Legislature, sets 
an FHA-type loan program for 
persons permitting them to bor- 
row from private lending sources 
at an interest rate not higher than 
5 1/2 per cent, and paying back 
after finishing or leaving college. 

Rep. Smith said he felt the new 
piece of legislation "will ultimately 
lead to abolishing legislative scho- 
larships which are only costly to 
the state and do not offer enough 
to students to assist them finan- 
cially in attending school." 

Dr. David Townsend 

tions, he is also an author having 
a number of monographs and pro-, 
fessional articles to his credit. 

Married to the former Dorothy 
Trichel of Campti, Dr. Townsend 
is the father of three children, 
Teresa, ten; Mary, three; and 
James, eight months. 

Extra Day Given 
For Holiday Period 

Northwestern's students, faculty 
and staff will get an extra day off 
for the Fourth of July, President 
John S. Kyser has announced. The 
holiday period will be July 4-7. 

But the extra day isn't free. In 
Dr. Kyser's words, "In order that 
we may meet our obligation of 
number of days of instruction and 
to carry on the general business of 
the college, we will have class and 
other routine operations of the col- 
lege tomorrow." 

In closing he adds, "Let everyone 
take full advantage of this summer 
session respite, and may you come 
back refreshed and rested." 


A dinner meeting of the Monroe- 
West Monroe Area Unit of the 
Northwestern State College Alum- 
ni Association was held Thursday 
night in Monroe. 

President John S. Kyser spoke 
on "Northwestern's Role in Higher 
Education in Louisiana." He was 
accompanied to the meeting by 
Dean of Administration Sylvan W. 
Nelken and Alumni Secretary Joe 
W. Webb. 

MICROFILM OF A RESEARCH publication article from Outer Mongolia is being exam- 
ined by Dr. Rene J. Bienvenu, center, head of the department of bacteriology at North- 
western State College, graduate student George W. Krumm, left, and Assistant Librarian 
Donald N. MacKenzie. Krumm initiated the request for a copy of the article printed in 
"Transactions of the Buryant-Mongolian National Intitute of Veterinary Studies," Bur- 
yant, Mongolia. With the assistance of U.S. Senator Allen J. Ellender, the library was able 
to secure the microfilm through the American Embassy in Moscow. It must now be trans- 
lated from Russian for possible use by Krumm.

Summer Student Council Needed 

"I don't see any need for a summer Student 

Have you had a complaint recently about 
the way things are run at Northwestern dur- 
ing the Summer? Have you noticed how help- 
less you feel when you have no one to go to 
with it? Have you wished that there were 
more planned activities in the Summer? Do 
you wish there were Summer sports, so that 

you could have some diversion? And do you 
miss reading the minutes of the Student Coun- 
cil in the "Current Sauce?" 

In short, have you ever wondered why 
the Student Council doesn't meet during the 
Summer semester? 

You may say, so what? There isn't that 
much going on during the Summer session. 
And most of the students commute or are 
grad students, or don't really care. Who needs 
unity and school spirit during the Summer? 
Things always work out, so what's the use 
of having a council? 

We at the "Current Sauce" feel that there 
is a strong need for a Summer council, per- 
haps made up of representatives from the 
various dormitories. The officers could be 
elected by the representatives, or perhaps 
during a house meeting. 

At any rate, the means is not important — 
it is the result which counts most. It seems 
not unfortunate, but absolutely needless that 
2,087 students go through even a single se- 
mester without a council to represent them in 
matters of importance, matters which affect 
them every day. 


by Robert Gentry 

In case you've been wondering 
who the new fellow hanging around 
the Current Sauce office is, it's me. 
Beginning now and continuing for 
the next three semesters, this col- 
umn will be coming with each issue 
of the paper. During its duration it 
will probably say many things 
about many subjects and about 
many people. You may like it, and 
then on the other hand, you may 
not. But in the outset, let's hope 
that this column will read good 
like a good column should. 

The Sauce will be put out by a 
skeleton crew this summer, but 
next fall and spring, with a full 
staff, we hope to give this college 
a topnotch paper. 

Many changes will be noted in 
forth coming issues of the Sauce. 
A statement of intent and purpose 
and statement concerning our po- 
licy for letters to the editor will 
appear in the first issue of the fall 

tion during its session last year. 
Spearheading the movement for de- 
feat of the bill this year again was 
the Representative from Natchito- 
ches Parish, Curtis E. Boozman, Sr. 

In retaliation to a remark made 
by Boozman, Rep. Ford Stinson of 
Bossier Parish said: "Mr. Boozman, 
if there is any place they don't 
need a college it's in Natchitoches. 
If it weren't for Northwestern be- 
ing there it wouldn't even make a 
good cotton field." 

Quite an unusual statement to 
come from a legislator we must 

A college in Shreveport would 
certainly be a blow to NSC. when 
it is considered that 574 students 
from Caddo Parish and 152 stu- 
dents from Bossier Parish attended 
Northwestern last semester. 

I was going through a batch of 
trade statistics the other day and 
came across a startling fact. Cana-

I was reading a copy of the Loui- 
siana College paper, the Wildcat 
Advance, and I came across a little 
note of interest in the exchange

A tip of the hat to Mrs. Mamie 
Bowman Tarleton and Dean Cla-

service to Northwestern. Congra- 
tulations are in store for Dr. 
George Stokes upon his appoint- 
ment as new dean. We don't 
know of a finer, more qualified 
person for the position. 

The Sauce next year will cele- 
brate its fiftieth anniversary. A 
special issue is planned next spring 
to commemorate this. It is inter- 
esting to note that while the Sauce 
is fifty years old, Natchitoches will 
be celebrating its 250th annivers- 
ary, and Northwestern will be 80 
years old.

Legislature defeated a bill which 
would create a college at Shreve-

Dear Robert: 

Lots of luck in the coming year 
with the Current Sauce. The paper 
needs someone with your ability to 
bring it back up to one of the bet- 
ter college papers in the country. 
It's a hard job but I feel you can 
do it.

While they are having these

THE Bitter 


THE Sweet 

by Carrie Nicklas 

Summertime at NSC means class- 
es five days a week and "Operation 
Evacuation" which takes place at 
noon on Friday. A typical sight of 
graduate students and children pic- 
nicing along Cane River is also in 

Do the students at NSC take ad- 
vantage of the opportunities allot- 
ted to them? Indeed they don't! Of 
course you may ask with an un- 
couth tone of voice — "What oppor- 
tunities?" "Of course there is this 
show and of course that one. . . ." 

"What a dead town, they must 
roll up the sidewalks at 9 o'clock. 
There just isn't anything to do in 
this town." 

There are always those "juke- 
box" dances in the student center, 
plenty of studying, a quick dip in 
the Natitorium, more study, a nap 
in the afternoon, a "good" movie 
to attend, a card game with some 
friends, and of course all those 
meetings you must attend. With all 
these things going on we find that 
our week-ends are left barren by 
an empty campus. 

Homeward Bound 

Typical conversation, steming 
from the fact that the entertain- 
ment at NSC, especially on week- 
ends, is a perpetual problem result- 
ing in far too many "Suitcase Sals 
and Sams" packing up and going 

Well this columnist hasn't found 
an answer to the question "What 
can we do around here" either, but 
here are a few suggestions. 

Bicycle Ride 

Bring out the bermuda shorts, 
rent a bicycle and go riding. Tour 
scenic Natchitoches on two wheels 
in the fresh open air. Remember 
once upon a time it was pretty ex- 
citing around this town. 

After your little bike tour you 

might enjoy relaxing in our spaci- 
ous library. All sorts of books and 
magazines are available for your 
use. Then of course you can always 
go over to the Student Center and 
enjoy a relaxing afternoon listen- 
ing to records in the lounge. 

Maybe you'd rather the outside, 
open air type entertainment more. 
If so, why not hurry on down to 
the tennis courts and play a match. 
Or maybe you'd rather a cook-out. 
Get a gang together and have a pic- 

Taffy Pull? 

Or how about an old fashion taffy 
pull? The religiuos groups always 
seem to have plenty of ways of 
having fun. Why not mosey Over 
and see what your denomination 
is doing? 

Perhaps some of these ideas will 
receive a bored "now wouldn't that 
be ducky fun?" But that's typical 
because if you are one of the ones 
who have to pack that Samsonite 
every Friday and charge off for 
home to be "entertained" it's not 
because you lack something to do, 
but what you need is imagination 
and a lots of energy. 

Oh well, that's all this week. 
Guess I'd better go fill out my 
"out-of-town" slip and see if I can 
find a ride home. Have a good 

urrenl Sauce

Dr. H. W. Hyde 
Awarded Grant 

Assistant professor of chemistry 
at Northwestern State College, Dr. 
H. Wayne Hyde, has been awarded 
a two-year $7,500 research grant 
from the Petroleum Research 
Fund. This is the first grant of 
this type to be received at this 

Two undergraduate students will 
be appointed later to assist in the 
research project. The grant in- 
cludes stipends for these two stu- 

Dr. Hyde will continue his re- 
search on the petro-chemical buta- 
diene which he began earlier while 
at the Copolymer Rubber and 
Chemical Corporation in Baton 

Dr. Hyde is a native of Denton, 
Tex. and he joined the faculty at 
Northwestern in the fall of 1962. 
He has received undergraduate de- 
grees from Pan American College 
and North Texas State University. 
He also received his master's from 
North Texas State and his doctor- 
ate from Tulane University. 

Welton Grundy, Economics Professor, 
Originates Word Game Called Logo 

by Annabel Blackiston, 
Feature Editor 

Logo, a Latin derivative meaning 
"word," is a new word game origi- 
nated by Welton Grundy, economics 
professor at Northwestern State. 
Grundy, who arrived at Northwest- 
ern this Spring, devised the game 
out of curiosity about the repitition 
of letters of the alphabet. 

He first intended it as a teaching 
aid to help students develop skill 
in spelling and increase their vo- 
cabulary. Today the game has been 
commercialized and is sold as a 
game for children and adults. 

The game is played like this. The 
letters of the alphabet are used at 
different rates of frequency thus, 
they receive their value. Each play- 
er forms a word and receives 
points. The player having the most 
points is the winner and then he 
challenges the other players to 
form a certain word. 

Any word that does not appear in 
the dictionary is not permitted. It 
is suggested that if this game is 
used in the classroom, the teacher 
let the student look up words that 
are mispelled. This gives them 
practice in using the dictionary 

Bonus Words 

Another version of Logo is bonus 
words. With these words the play- 
ers are challenged to such questions 
as, "What is a four-letver word that 
begins with M and adds up to 52 
points?" This version makes the 
game more of a challenge since it 
has to be a particular word. 

Mr. Grundy was studying for his 
Masters degree in economics when 
he devised the game. That's why 
it is strange that such a game 
should come from him. 

This fall Grundy will attend eith- 
er LSU or Oklahoma University to 
work toward his doctoral degree in 
economics. Before coming to North- 
western he had been in industry 
and had taught at both Texas A&I 
and North Texas State University 


Dr. Edwin E. Wheeler, professor 
of psychology and guidance at 
Northwestern State College, will 
leave at the end of the summer se- 
mester to take on a new assign 
ment at the University of Georgia 
in Athens. Dr. Wheeler will be de- 
voting his time entirely to the 
counseling and guidance field as a 
senior counselor and director. 

Dr. Wheeler has been at NSC for 
three years. 

HILDA C. BURNHAM resigned 
this month as dean of the School 
of Nursing. She had been at North- 
western for 10 years. The "Current 
Sauce" was unable to learn why 
she resigned or of her future plans, 

Bells Will Ring

Freshmen's Hair 
Cuts Forbidden 

A new innovation has been add- 
ed to the tradition of Northwest- 
ern State College. As of the Spring 
semester 1963, the cutting of fresh- 
men's hair by upperclassmen was 
forbidden. The announcement was 
made at the Freshmen Orientation 
meeting in the Fall of 1962. At 
that time, the freshmen were told 
that theirs would be the last class 
to have their hair cut. 

An interview with Leonard O. 
Nichols, Dean of Men, brought 
out the fact that only about 15 
upperclassmen were taking part 
in the hair cutting. This, added to 
the fact that a number of our sister 
institutions have banned hair cut- 
ting, prompted the change in pol- 

According to Dean Nichols, Lou- 
isiana State University, Louisiana 
Tech, University of Southwestern 
Louisiana, and Northeast have end- 
ed the cutting of freshmen hair. 
Dean Nichols also said that he re- 
ceived a letter from Louisiana Col- 
lege asking our policy with rela- 
tion to hair cutting. It seems pro- 
bable that they will be the next 
school to end this practice. 

Dean Nichols said that he be- 
lieves the change to be a good pol- 
icy due to the lack of interest 
shown by the upperclassmen. The 
change will definitely be perma-

Bathing Suit Time 
For Coeds Is Here 

by Janice Freeman, 
Society Editor 

Now is the time for campus beau- 
ties to don their bathing suits and 
join the parade in the sun. 

Heading the fashion parade is 
the beautiful Madras. Because they 
can be found in a variety of plaids 
and styles they are favorites of the 
college coeds. 

The runner up to Madras is the 
middy tops, which can be found in 
patriotic colors of red, white, and 
blue. These are ideal for temporary 
covering up of the shoulders. 

Bikinis of the "bare world" are 
not in the land of the dead. They 
have been re-styled to cover more 
of the midriff. They can be found 
in ideal styles, with little pleated 
bottoms and longer tops. 

Fashioned after the blousey 
shifts are the bloused bathing suits. 
These can be worn by just about 
anyone and are ideal for the camp- 
us parade. So Girls! Don your bath- 
ing suits and join the parade. ,

NSC Looked Overpowering, Awesome 
To Freshman Student on First Day 

(Editor's Note: Annabel Black- 
iston, Current Sauce Feature Edi- 
tor and a freshman journalism ma- 
jor, has written the following essay 
telling of her first week at North- 

To us freshmen, Northwestern 
looked overpowering and awesome 
at first glance on that eventful 
Monday morning when our homes 
for the summer, the dormitories, 
opened. We fearfully lugged our 
30 pounds of baggage and extra 
items into the various living quar- 
ters. If we were lucky we had only 
to go as far as room 124 or 131 but 
for the unfortunate souls who were 
destined for room 317 or 343, it 
was a long, steep, exhausting climb. 

Finally settled into an unorgan- 
ized and chaotic mess, we began to 
roam, a little hesitantly, the beau- 
tiful green, tree-shaded campus — 
only to find ourselves walking 
through electrical wiring and dirt 
and dust from new construction. 

It's A Great Life 

Life was great that first week! 
Yes sir — if you found one rule 
which said "do" instead of "don't" 
you fainted from shock. Every 
freshman realized though, that the 
rules were made for our benefit 
and pleasure. 

We must have asked a million 
questions of our house directors 
and we tried desperately to avoid 
receiving a minor or a restriction. 
Oh, how those two words echoed 
in our ears! 

The time passed quickly and we 
discovered another aspect of col- 
legiate life — lines. Lines at the post 
office to get our box, lines to re- 
gister, lines to pay fees, lines to 
pick up I.D. cards, and lunch lines. 

From 7 til 12 

After the hectic days of registra- 
tion we finally took part in the 
mass return to class. We started 
out at seven sharp, after breakfast 
at six, for which we had to get up 

at five, when we had gone to bed 
at 12 the night before because of 
a house meeting. Our excitement 
and anticipation overshadowed our 
drowsiness and as we got into the 
routine of college life, we began to 
realize what lay ahead for us. 

We were "dogs" with our newly 
purchased and highly prized pur- 
ple beanies atop faces filled with 
anxiety and frustration. We were 
scared to death and somewhere be- 
tween the last strains of "Pomp 
and Circumstance" and that first 
day we had lost a little, if not all, 
of our self-confidence. We were 
here to learn, to share new and dif- 
ferent experiences and to mature. 
With a little help and guidance and 
a lot of work from us, we are de- 
termined to fulfill those things. 
For as we say "Hello, Northwest- 
ern," she says "Welcome, fresh- 
men, you lucky 'dogs'."

THIS SIGN, located on a door in the hallway of 
the first floor of West Varnado, prohibits the hall 
from being used as a "thoroughfare." It is initialed 
by Mrs. Katherine Kirkland, house mother. 

LOCATED ON A DOOR leading into West Varnado, 
the sign initialed by Mrs. Tommie Nugent, house 
mother, advises girls in West Varnado not to use 
the hall as a "thoroughfare." 

ONE MINOR is given for talking in the bathroom, 
this sign in Varnado proclaims. The name or initial 
of the person putting the sign up is not given,

Signs Bring Rash of Protests From Dormitory Occupants 

Signs placed recently in a fresh- 
men woman's dormitory on the 
Northwestern campus have 
brought a rash of protests from 
the occupants of the dormitories 
and others. 

The signs are all located in Var- 
nado Hall. Two are initialed by 
house mothers — one by Mrs. Tom- 
mie Nugent and the other by Mrs. 
Katherine Kirkland. 

Dean of Women Frances Porter 
told the Current Sauce that the 
signs had been placed in Varnado 

with her permission. Concerning 
one of the signs, Dean Porter 
stated: "The sign referring to talk- 
ing means loud talking and scream- 
ing over the noise of the running 

Rules governing the actions of 
women students on campus are 
set up by the Associated Women 
Students. These rules, most wo- 
men students agree, are fair and 
reasonable, but the three warnings 
given through the signs have been 

termed "unreasonable" and "dis- 

Dean Porter pointed out that 
the rules set up for girls are "good 
sense rules" and they follow a 
pattern. She continued by saying 
that rules are made to fit the 
greatest number of girls, not the 
individual few who disagree with 

"Such signs as these were put 
up because complaints have been 
made to the house directors and 

the signs serve as a warning to 
the girls," Dean Porter remarked. 

Continuing, the dean said, 
"These rules are set up for the pur- 
pose of getting organized and get- 
ting started off right." 

Concerning other rules govern- 
ing freshmen girls Dean Porter 
said that they are expected to be 
reasonably quiet at all times. 

"After room check, they are not 
permitted to play the radio, visit 
among friends," she said. "If they 

need to study, they may study a- 
lone, but not together. A whisper 
could hardly be heard, so if they 
need to say something, a whisper 
is permissable." 

Dean Porter also pointed out 
that freshmen girls are allowed to 
use the library at night, but she 
stressed that library services 
should be used in the afternoon. 
"If it is necessary for a girl to 
use the library at night," she con- 
cluded, "then she should explain 
her needs to the house director."

Three New Courses 
Will Be Offered 

The Languages Department an- 
nounces that several new courses 
in television will be offered this 
fall. These will be advanced classes 
and will be open to anyone having 
a basic course in T.V. 

The three new courses to be of-

A Welcomed Announcement 

Cigaret manufacturers made a welcomed 
announcement late last month. They an- 
nounced that they have cut sharply their pro- 
motional activities on college campuses in 
the U.S. 

This step, which included dropping adver- 
tising in college newspapers, magazines and 
other publications, was taken to forestall 
growing criticism of the companies' efforts 
to encourage young people to smoke. 

This action by cigaret manufacturers will 
mean a big loss in advertising revenue for 
the "Current Sauce," but it is action which 
we are glad to see. 

Concerning this action Robert K. Heiman, 
assistant to the president of the American 
Tobacco Co., said: "It has always been the po- 
sition of the American Tobacco Co. that 
smoking is for enjoyment of adults. And spe- 
cial pains are taken to see that nothing in 
our advertising implies otherwise." 

Heiman gave no indication that his or any 
other tobacco company in the American To- 
bacco Institute dropped collegiate advertising 
as a result of pressure by various health 
associations which are making increased 
drives to discourage cigarette smoking. 

But letters from national advertising com- 
panies to college publications broke the 
news — no more cigarette ads — at the same 
time the American Heart Association joined 
the ranks of protesters against cigarette 

The following warning was issued by the 
Board of Directors of the AHA: "There is 
sufficient evidence of the harmful effects of 

cigarette smoking to warrant the American 
Heart Association and its affiliates and chap- 
ters joining with other health agencies in 
educational programs to discourage cigar- 
ette smoking by the general public." 

The AHA also said that after being on the 
verge of recommending smokers cease and 
desist in 1960, it had waited to see more evi- 
dence. All that has come in since that time, 
the AHA reported, has tended to confirm 
earlier findings — that there is a relationship 
between heavy cigarette smoking and in- 
creased danger of heart attack. 

The American Cancer Society for many 
years has been telling that cancer has been 
increasing out of proportion in comparison 
to all other diseases and they attribute it to 
heavy smoking. 

Dr. Alton Ochsner, the nation's foremost 
authority on lung cancer, had this to say 
about cancer and smoking: "Smoking is a 
form of self destruction just the same as 
putting a bullet in your head. Putting a bullet 
in your head is cheap, quick and painless; 
death by lung cancer through smoking is 
painful, slow and expensive." 

This step by manufacturers has closed the 
cigaret package, at least in part, to college 
students. It is a beginning. 

We think that all forms of tobacco adver- 
tising should be banned on the Northwestern 
State campus. This includes the giving of 
free samples, the use of contests, and the 
use of posters. We also believe that all cigar- 
et vending machines should be removed 
from the campus. 

Action, President Kyser? 

Social Sciences Tour Program Exfended 

The Northwestern State College Depart- 
ment of Social Sciences this summer will ex- 
tend its annual educational tour program to 
include a trip to Western Europe. This is 
another first for Northwestern — it is the first 
over-seas tour to be inaugurated by a state 
college in Louisiana. 

The "Current Sauce" is proud to see the 
extension of this valuable tour and we think 
those responsible for planning and initiating 
this program are due much credit for their 
foresight and wisdom. 

Making initial plans and spearheading the 
move for the extension to the tour was Dr. 
Yvonne Phillips, head of the Social Sciences 
Department. She received assistance from 
Dr. Leo T. Allbritten, dean of Instruction and 
the Graduate School, and President John S. 
Kyser. Members of the Social Sciences De- 
partment also gave valuable help, especially 
LeRoi Eversull, George A. Stokes and Mrs. 
Jane Nahm. 

This summer's will be the thirteenth an- 
nual tour of the United States and will fea- 
ture the southwest with an optional side trip 
to Hawaii. 

The tours were started back in the 1930's 
by President Kyser when he was a teacher 
in the Social Sciences Department. These 
tours, which only included Louisiana, were 
discontinued when World War II started. The 
tours were revived in 1950 and have since 
been on the grow. 

Dr. Phillips is well pleased with the re- 
sponse received thus far on the tour of West- 
ern Europe. In addition to planning the tour. 
Dr. Phillips has prepared a manual and text- 
book for the tour. 

This textbook has received high praise 
from other college campuses and at least 
two are interested in obtaining it for their 
own use. 

We are extremely proud of this first for 
Northwestern, and we are glad that North- 
western is still leading the way. 



In considering an opening topic 
for the second "Jest Wandering," 
I thought about talking about the 
weather, mainly because it's such 
a timely subject — we're always 
having weather and everyone is 
continuely talking about it, but 
since we've been having so much 
of it lately, I thought that it would 
be a good idea to just skirt the 
subject altogether this issue. Now 
that that is settled, I'm jest going 
to wander on to the first subject 
without any talk of the weather 
at all. 

I was walking over to Caddo 
Hall the other day on a "Business" 
trip, and I found that the dorm was 

built for people who drive, only. 
It seems that there is no sidewalk 
going to the main entrance. If 
a person is walking over, he must 
walk on the street, and be at the 
mercy of all sorts of self-propelled 
gasoline — fueled combustion — type 
vehicles, or, he must walk on the 
grass — and you know as well as I 
how bad that practice is. We might 
all fall under the wrath of the 
"Let's keep NSC green" club. And 
all because no one will lay a few 
yards of sidewalk. 


The other evening my room- 
mate and I were down at one of the 
local ice-cream places, and Norm 
Fletcher, one of the owner-opera- 
tors of KNOC came over to talk 
a minute. Seeing the little sticker 
on the windshield that says 
"PRESS" — he did just that. He 
seemed disappointed that nothing 

It seems that something could be 
done about the telephone system. 
Last issue I told you about some 
fun with the phone — well, it's dif- 
ferent this time — I was cut off 
twice during two separate long dis- 
tance phone calls. . . . 

I don't call that fun. I'm not 
sure if the fault lies in the cam- 
pus phone system, or in the out- 
side line, but I suspect that the 
trouble is here. 

If any of my readers (if I have 
any) have any amusing incidents 
that you wish to relate, and per- 
haps see in this column, or you 
have gripes, comments, etc. that 
you want discussed, drop a letter 
by the Sauce office in Bullard Hall, 
or send it to Sonny Carter, NSC 
Current Sauce Office, NSC, Nat- 
chitoches. I'll try to talk about it 
in a nice way, or at least humor- 

Did you know that elephants en- 
joy making love under water? Bye.

Dr. Roderick Outland is teaching 
a section of biology 108 in room 
108 of Williamson Hall and there 
are 108 students in the class. 

Eric (Jake) Nelson, business 
major from the hamlet fo Martha- 
ville, tells this little story: "I fin- 
ally had to buy a notebook. My 
trial schedule card would hold no 
more notes." 

A bad newspaper is kind of like 
what Will Rogers once said about 
the weather: "Everybody talks a- 
bout it, but nobody does anything 
about it." 

We want you to know that the 
Sauce is always glad for you to 
talk about it, whether it be good 
or bad. 

Anytime you have a comment 
about the Sauce or some sugges- 
tion as to how it might be im- 
proved, we would appreciate hear- 
ing about it. 

Albert A. Fredericks, president 
of Louisiana Normal College from 
Aug. 1, 1934-June 30, 1941, says that 
once while he was president a sur- 
plus was accumulted in the book 

store fund. Know what he did? 
Chartered a special train loaded on 
the entire student body, and took 
them to the World's Fair which 
was going on in Dallas, Texas. 

We got a lot of compliments on 
the attractive ad for Gibson's Dis- 
count Center in the last issue of 
the Sauce. Credit should go to Ra- 
gan Gantt, Sauce ad man. 

IRONIC NOTE: Annabel Blackis- 
ton, Sauce Feature Editor, mis- 
spelled "misspelled" in a feature 
story in the last issue of the paper. 
She spelled it "mispelled." 

A lot of interest has been shown 
in the feature story in the last 
issue of the paper concerning Logo, 
word game originated by Econom- 
ics Prof. Welton Grundy. 

Social Studies Prof. Rade Rada- 
sinovich took an interest in the 
game and is now exploring the 
possibility of using it as a teach- 
ing aid in his classes. 

Anyone interested in getting a 
copy of this education and fun-to- 
play game can give me a call or 
drop by the Sauce office.

THE Sweet 

by Carrie Nicklas 

One of the main topics of dis- 
cussion among the students at NSC 
is the dining hall. Each semester 
there are new gripes and criti- 

This semester the food has been 
considerably better, although it 
doesn't compare with mother's 
cooking at home. At first, the in- 
coming freshmen may gasp when 
they see the food they are about 
to partake, but don't worry they 
will get used to it as the semester 
goes by. 

Please Vary 

The idea of eggs, potatoes and/ 
or rice every day will gradually 
penetrate into their daily thoughts 
of the cafeteria. After about three 
weeks everyone knows the sched- 
uled menu for the day before they 
even go over to eat. Many students 
have ask for a little variation in 
the menu and • again our plea is 
made public. "Please vary the 
meals, this standard routine is be- 
coming awfully monotonous," they 

Many comments are also made 
concerning line breakers. This 
columnist does not intend to hit 
these so called sneaks, because 
they may have a good reason for 
doing this. This semester, a very 
difficult problem has faced many 
of the students. 

Long Line 

The line is extremely long by the 
time lunch is served and students 
having 12 o'clock classes find it 

difficult to be able to get in and 
eat before their class. For this 
reason, why can't the dining hall 
be opened by at least 11:15? 

This would eliminate some of 
the rush and would give the stu- 
dents a chance to taste what they 
are eating instead of swallowing 
it whole. Many of these same stu- 
dents have one o'clock classes so 
they must eat at 11:30 or not at 
all. And let's face it, everyone 
can't be at the front of the line, 
many will have to wait! 

Of course few realize the pro- 
blem of the workers in the cafe- 
teria but if they come directly 
from their class to the dining hall 
to eat, then they should be ready 
to serve lunch by 11:15. All consid- 
ered, we, the students, feel that 
the dining hall is there to serve 
us and that the hours for service 
should be scheduled to fit the 
needs of the students. 

Well that's all for this week, 
See you in line.!

15 From Wesley 
View 'Longest Day' 

A group of 15 people from the 
Wesley Foundation, sponsored by 
Bob Tatum, went to Shreveport to 
view the movie "The Longest Day" 
on Saturday, June 29. 

Each Sunday morning the Meth- 
odist students have a breakfast at 
which they discuss the topic of 

Louisiana Hall, women's honor dorm, is in it's final stages 
of construction, and will be ready for occupancy in the fall 
semester, (photo by Lamar Bates) 

Louisiana Hall, Honors Dormitory, 
Will Be Opened For Fall Semester 

During the past year, many stu- 
dents have witnessed the rise and 
near completion of Louisiana Hall 
which will be finished in time for 
the Fall semester. 

Housing 180 women students, the 
building will have study lounges, 
living rooms on each floor and will 
be totally air conditioned. 

The house director will be Mrs. 
Anne Dunnam, formerly the di- 
rector of Kate Chopin Hall. She 
and the students residing in the 
dorm will devise their own plan 
of living, holding special programs 
and including guest speakers on 
various topics. 

To be eligible for residency, a 
student must have attained at 
least a 2.8 academic average for 
the semester preceding residency 

in Louisiana Hall. If her average 
drops during a semester while she 
is living there, the coed is given 
one semester to bring her average 
back up in order to remain. 

Those who are already eligible 
have received letters of informa- 
tion, and room request cards. 
These will be filled out and re- 
turned in order to assign rooms for 
the fall semester. 

Miss Francis Porter, Dean of 
Women, stated the idea was not 
new to college campuses, but it 
is at Northwestern. She expressed 
hope that the plan would encour- 
age girls to work for higher aca- 
demic averages and thus be eligi- 
ble to reside in Louisiana Hall, 
for three years.

The Westminister Presbyterian 
students held a fellowship June 29. 
A group of 25 students, with Kay 
Jones acting as chairman, went to

By Summer Art Workshop 

Dear Crabby, 

I have a big problem. A girl who 
lives in my suite is immune to tak- 
ing a bath. Honestly the smell is 
terrific. How could you approach 
this delicate subject in a "nice" 
way, and ask her to please take a 
bath and powder down with a good 
smelling powder? I am at my wits 
end, please help me, I can't hold 
my nose forever! 


Dear Stiffling, 

Unfortunately, I have no sugges- 
tions on how to approach her on 
this subject, but I do have a dandy 
little gadget that sells for only 
$9.95 (cash, check, or money order, 
no stamps or C.O.D.'s please). This 
handy little portable gas mask will 
do the job, I'm sure. 


Dear Crabby, 

I don't have a problem, but I 
was thinking that you do. You old 
busy-body, always getting in on all 
of the gossip before anyone else 
does. I was just wondering, how do 
you think that you're such a au- 
thority on everything? 


Dear Disgusted, 
Your letter really hurt me. I 

don't think that I'm such a great 
authority. I just try to be sweet 
and helpful and all that jazz, but 
I find that I'm unappreciated. Be- 
sides that, this is my column, and 
I'll thank you to keep your nose 
out of my business! The nerve! 
Calling me nosey! Some people! 


Dear Crabby, 

I have a problem. There's this 
fellow, I'll call him Joe. Well, Joe 
is a good guy, but he takes things 
for granted. Just like this water- 
melon party that we were having, 
he just flat took it for granted that 
I was going to go. But I didn't. 
Now, he's left me. 

Please advise me as to how to 
get him back. 

The Assistant 

Dear Assistant, 

As I see it, you do have a pro- 
blem, but the answer is simple. 
You either can continue to take 
this attitude that he is the only one 
around, or you can just start hav- 
ing your own watermelon parties, 
and take him for granted for a

By Sonny Carter 

"A Library of Fantasy," an an- 
nual exhibit of art produced by 
Art Workshop 404 class opened 
April 2 for a day-long show at the 
art gallery at Northwestern State 

A fairytale land of color and art- 
istry brought to life the fables of 
childhood ranging from "Alice in 
Wonderland," to the "Goose that 
laid the Golden Egg." 

The collection of over 100 water 
colors, tempras, collages, papier 
mache sculptures, mobiles, and 
other forms fantastique drew an 
audience of over 300 people. 

Gay Profusion 

The exhibit brought the many 
art forms into a colorfully busy, 
yet united scene of gay profusion. 

Of note was a tower six feet high, 
complete with a blond Rapunzle 
with braids five feet long, and a 
handsome prince at the bottom be- 
ginning his climb. 

Large story-book collages with 
scenes of "Paul Bunyon," "Made- 
line goes to Paris," and "Hansel 
and Gretel" added to the children's 
wonderland, while a five-foot high 
Paul Bunyon stood in the center 
of it all with a raccoon, a dog, and 
a big blue ox that was nearly as 
big as an ox. 

Butterflys, fish, and assorted mo- 
biles hung from above, and the tin 
woodman from "The Wizard of Oz" 
stood in the corner, apparently 
needing oil — his joints were rusty. 

Nearly every character was re- 
presented, in an interesting and 
animated fashion. 

"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down 
your long hair," says the hand- 
some prince as he begins his 
climb to the top of the tower, with 
Michael Wayne Duke, son of Mr. 
and Mrs. James Duke looking on. 

IE Workshop 
Being Attended 
By NSC Students 

Northwestern students majoring 
in industrial arts education are 
participating in the eighth annual 
General Motors workshop in Baton 
Rouge. The workshop began July 
8, and will continue until July 22. 

The workshop operates through 
NSC, and is designed to aid pros- 
pective industrial arts vocation 
teachers in the field of automotive 

General Motors has set up 26 
training centers for college stu- 
dents, and the Baton Rouge center 
is number 19 of those in the na- 
tion. The center serves Mississippi 
and Louisiana, but NSC is the only 
school within the two which is ac- 
tive in supporting it, and through 
which it operates. 

Students attending the workshop 
attend demonstrations eight hours 
daily for five days of the week, 
and are given one semester hour's 
credit for each week. 

"I don't know, what do you think it is?" Tanya 
Michael look over a papier mache sculpture.

velopmental Biology, which con- 
cerned the embryology of verte- 
brates and regeneration of body 
parts, is being held on the North- 
western Campus. The Institute is 
conducted for superior high school 

Twenty-four Louisiana, Texas, 
and Arkansas youths participated 
I in the Institute, and 16 of these 
worked toward college credit. Other 
participants were auditors. 

The National Science Foundation 
sponsors the annual summer pro- 
gram and a grant of $8,330 has been 
awarded the college for its sup- 

Dr. Ralph Combs, associate pro- 
fesor of biological science at NSC, 
is director of the program. The 24 
high ability secondary school stu- 
dents were selected for the Insti- 
tute from 42 applicants. Their ave- 
rage grades were "A" in science, 
and their overall high school ave- 
rage was "B" or higher. On na- 
tional test scores the group ave- 
raged 90 percentile or above. 

The purpose of the Institute is 
to stimulate students to pursue a 
scientific career. Each student has 
a research problem, and each is 
concerned with regenration of body 
parts and the living chick embryo.

"Teahouse Of The August Moon" 
Closes Summer Theatre Series 

"The Teahouse of the August Moon" will be the final pro- 
duction in the Summer series of plays being presented at 
Hodges Gardens by The 1963 NSC Summer Theatre Workshop. 
Presented on the Lakeshore 


Stage, the play will begin at 8:00 
p.m. July 26 and 27. 

The play, written by John Patrick 
and adapted from the novel written 
by Vern Sneider, pursues the ca- 
reer of an Army of Occupation of- 
ficer stationed in a remote town 
in Okinawa. 

His duty is to teach democracy 
to the natives, and there is a stern 
and stupid Colonel breathing down 
his neck to insure the enforcement 
of the manual of occupation. 

But the young officer has not 
prepared himself for the ingenious 
charm of the people. Within a mat- 
ter of days he finds himself the 
owner of a Grade A Geisha girl; the 
materials sent him for the construc- 
tion of a school are being used to 
build a Teahouse and he himself, 
in an effort to improve the econo- 
my of the village, has taken to 
selling the villages principal pro- 
duct, potato brandy, to the sur- 
rounding Army and Navy officer's 

The gala opening of the Tea- 
house is, of course, the moment 
chosen by the Colonel to make his 

The officer is sure to be court- 
martialed and the Colonel demoted. 
But when life is darkest, word ar- 
rives that Congress, that old stand- 
by, has received word that this is 
the most progressive village on the 
island, and all is forgiven. 

Directed by Dr. Edna West and 
staged by Frank Magers, the play's 
cast are Ed Bacilla, Bobby Ray 
Welch, Jim Mambourg, Dennis 
Folds, Joan Griffin, Lola Gay Ai- 
ken, Brad Hortman, Suzanne Hort-

Mobile Driving Simulator Unit 
Put Into Use on Campus 

by Carrie Nicklas, 
Assistant Editor 

Parked in front of the Men's 
Gym on the Northwestern State 
College campus is a Mobile Driving 
Simulator. This unique unit arrived 
on campus July 20th and will re- 
main here until the middle of Sep- 

The unit is to be used in the 
driver education program for high 
school students. Coach Walter Le- 
det will be in charge of the pro- 
gram. College students in the 
Health 311 class will be working 
with Ledet in learning to operate 
the unit. 

Driving By Film 

Inside the unit there are 12 in- 
dividual miniature cars. The stu 
dents will drive according to in- 
structions given them by film. A 
large screen is in front of the stu 

dents and they meet various driv- 
ing situations by film. Each film 
is designed with a different pur- 
pose in mind. The car units ope- 
rate both on manual and automatic 
transmission to introduce the stu- 
dents to both types. Each unit is 
numbered and individually scored 
as the driver makes an error. 

Passed Around 

This particular unit is designed 
for colleges and is passed from one 
college to the next. Henry A. Coe- 
nen, assistant administrator of the 
drivers license division, brought 
the unit to NSC and will remain 
here until the program gets under- 

Appointments may be made to 
see the unit in operation by con- 
tacting Coach Ledet. 

The program is sponsored by the 
Department of Public Safety and 
the State Board of Education. 

JANET BUTLER, CECILIA CARNER, and Jane Plum, of the Contemporary Dance Club, 
will perform at the Northwestern State College Drama Workshop's production of "Tea- 
house of the August Moon" being presented tonight and tomorrow at Hodge's Gardens 
near Many.

Money Allocated 
For New Building 

The Louisiana Bond and Build- 
ing Commission has allocated 
$400,000 for a new administration 
building at Northwestern State Col- 
lege, according to State Sen. Syl- 
van Friedman of Natchez. The 
group met July 9 in Baton Rouge. 

Immediate plans for the new 
building could not be obtained 
from NSC President John S. Kyser. 

The money will come from a 
$60-million bond issue voted for 
the state. 

Money for the new health and 
physical education building also 
came from this bond issue. 

"YES, THE NEW GIRL'S DORM will be placed off limits, and the purpose of the wall 
is to enforce the rule." Thus saith the law, Campus Security Officer Tommie Bonner, 
in response to the plaintive query of James Long, "So what's with all the plaster 
work?" Behind the barricade several coeds, Glenda Thompson, Carolyn Wells, Judy 
Scoggs, Janice Freeman and Martha Sers, look on with mixed emotions. Actually all 
the concrete is sidewalks which were torn up near the near completed Louisiana Hall,

For Better Coverage, Cooperation Needed 

Recently, the "Current Sauce" has been 
criticized because it has not given certain 
groups the amount of coverage that they have 
been accustomed to having in the past. 

The main reason for this, is that no one on 
the staff this summer is trying to use the 
"Sauce" as a method to bring up their grades 
in a particular class. 

A secondary reason for this is the fact that 
the "Current Sauce" has changed it's policy 
in regard to news coverage. 

Before this summer, it was the policy of the 
paper to re-write news releases from the Col- 
lege News Bureau, rather than to do it's own 

Our concern this semester has been to 

change the paper from a repeat of what has 
been in all of the state papers, into a news- 
paper which features the students of the col- 
lege, gives a balance of interesting and varied 
news, and does not favor one group over 

We don not wish to discourage people who 
have news for the paper. If anything, we want 
to encourage them. Since we now do our own 
reporting, we would appreciate a little bit of 
co-operation. If you have news for us. call our 
office, and we will send a reporter, or take 
the information over the phone. 

If you give us just a few minutes of your 
time, you will be assured of publicity — publi- 
city which will boost your department, club, 
or other organization. 

Why Dead Week? 

The week before final exams begin, there 
is a group of five dank and dull days known 
almost universally as Dead Week. 

During dead week, professors aren't sup- 
posed to give any large exams, and students 
are supposed to give up their social life alto- 

Many profs give pop quizes during this 
period which can change your grade entirely, 
and when there isn't anything to do, when you 
get tired of study, it leads to tension. 

As one coed put it: "Last semester in the 
girls dorms we wern't allowed to make a 
sound. The tension built up to a point that you 

felt like screaming. You couldn't get angry 
at the course, and throw the book at the wall 
to release the built-up emotions." 

Special study week is a time that is both 
scorned and appreciated. 

A graduate student here said: "I appreciate 
this special time of quietness. I can get quite 
a bit done without the constant noise heard 
throughout the semester." 

However, the consensus is that it is more 
trouble than it is worth. Perhaps the only 
thing that could be done during the time that 
is designated "Special Study Week", is that 
the Library hours be lengthened. 


I was reading the other day 
where the Canadian Federation of 
Biological Societies at their annual 
meeting concluded that the only 
effective weapon against insects 
is still the fly swat. 

I believe that, because the roach- 
es are so bad over at Prudhomme 
Hall that insecticide has little ef- 
fect. I can't really say that, be- 
cause my room-mate killed three 
the other night when he threw an 
empty insecticide can at them. 

The other night we were riding 
around, and we saw the fire truck 
take off, and since we like to chase 
fire engines, and also since we are 
diligent journalists always in seach 

of a story, we followed it. 

Blinker Gets Results 

At the Drive-in theatre, there 
was a car whose engine was on fire, 
and it took the firemen only a 
few seconds to take care of it. Af- 
terwards though, the firetruck 
pulled into the root beer drive-in, 
and the firemen had some root- 
beer. They had the little red light 
blinking. It seems to me that that 
was a sneaky way of getting quick 

I understand that for the first 
time since 1956, the "spike" heel 
on women's shoes is no longer fas- 
hionable. The "sportive" look is 
now on the scene. Translated, this 
means low stacked heels. I concede 
that the spikes were attractive, 
but they wrought havoc on floors. 
The average woman in spike heels 
exerts about one fourth of a ton 
per square inch on each heel on 
the floors that are supporting her. 

That's a lot of weight for any 
floor to have to put up with, in 
my estimation. 

Our Secret 

Heard a few comments about 
last issue of the Sauce. The thing 
that puzzles most people is how 
Lamar Bates got into the girl's 
bathroom to get a picture of that 
sign. . . That's our secret. (Actu- 
ally we got this wig, ) 

Hate to keep harping on the 
subject of telephones, but I under- 
stand that people who call from 
off campus in the daytime are im- 
pressed by the "courtesy" of the 
campus operators. Who likes to 
get barked at over the phone? 

I was down looking at the new 
swimming area on Chaplin's Lake. 
It's coming along fine, and should 
help relieve the summer boredoms. 

It takes about four hours to hard- 
boil an Ostrich egg.

This is the last issue of the Sauce 
for the summer. We are looking 
forward to an interesting and e- 
ventful fall and spring. 

There will be no admission 
charge for the production of "Tea- 
house of the August Moon" Friday 
and Saturday night at Hodges Gar- 
dens. This is the season's second 
production by the NSC Summer 
Theatre Workshop at the Gardens. 

Miss Mary McEniry, English Prof 
underwent surgery Monday, July 
15, at the Natchitoches Parish Hos- 
pital. It is not known when she 
will return to her teaching duties. 

Thanks to Peyton Crawford for 
past favors. 

Sauce Advisor Roy. G. Clark will 
be leaving come September to 
work on his doctorate at Southern 

Illinois University at Carbondale. 
We certainly hate to see him leave 
at this time, because we had hopes 
that he would be around this fall 
and spring to advise the Sauce. 

The girls in West Varnado en- 
joyed a watermelon party Mon- 
day night, July 15, down on Chap- 
lin's Lake. 

With regret we learn that Eco- 
nomics Prof. Welton Grundy will 
be leaving Northwestern at the 
end of this semester to work on 
his doctorate. Mr. Grundy started 
teaching here last Spring.

Well, that's all for this summer.

"And thus another semester is 
rapidly drawing to a close." This 
is the sigh of many tired, disgusted, 
yet happy students on the campus 
at NSC. 

During these short nine weeks 
the freshman were introduced to 
various phases of college life. For 
some, it was a disappointing ad- 
venture when they realized (much 
too late for help) that college is 
also a place where they must work 
if they intend to return in the fall, 
For others it was a busy nine 
weeks of work and little play. 

Rough Courses 

For the upper classmen it was 
a nice way to get those "rough" 
courses over with in a short nine 
weeks rather than the long 18 
weeks in a regular semester. And, 
alas, for the beloved senior it was 
the "glorious end" to their hard 
by-gone days of their college en

most everyone. "FINALS!" Out

cramming sessions begin. And 
that never ceasing search for old 
finals is the common whisper a- 
mong the students. 

But soon it will all be over and 
for six weeks these weary NSC stu- 
dents will relax and enjoy the sum- 
mer. Plenty of sun, sleep and eat- 
ing is well in order for most of 
us, I am sure. 

Thoughts of NSC 

Whatever your plans for the 
summer may be, come September 
your thoughts wil turn toward NSC 
again. Once again it is time to re- 
turn to school to begin the fall 
semester which will be filled with 
new experiences for everyone. 

It is the wish of this columnist 
that you will have a safe and plea- 
sant summer vacation and that you 
will return again in the fall to 

Have a nice vacation, see you 
this fall.

Outlook For Football Season Good 
Despite The Loss Of 16 Lettermen 

DR. ROBERT WIRTZ explains the use of a manipulative device to Mrs. Olive Stagg, super- 
vising teacher for Rapides Parish, during a conference in modern mathematics held this

New Wesley Foundation Building 
Scheduled For Completion By Fall 

by Annabel Blackiston 
Sauce Religious Editor 

Wesley Foundation members will 
find themselves housed this fall in 
an impressive, modernistic build- 
ing located on College Avenue, di- 
rectly across from the President's 
home. This was the original site 
of the building which they are cur- 
rently meeting in. It was relocated 
in 1962. 

The building, begun in the late 
Spring of 1963, will cover 6,000 
square feet of space. Included in 
the new building will be a direc- 
tor's office plus student offices. 
The members will have at their 
disposal use of the modern kitchen, 
complete with the latest conven- 
iences. A Library will be located 
near the chapel in the rear. 

Located in the main building 
will be a living room, dominated 
by a large fireplace and a large 
recreation area with a seating ca- 
pacity of 350 for special banquets 
and dinners. A "pass-trough" win- 
dow will make service to this area 
from the kitchen easy. 

Chapel In Rear 

In the rear of the structure will 

be the chapel. The seating capacity 
for this area will be 150. Part of 
this number will be seated in the 
small balcony located in the rear 
of the chapel. It can be reached 
by a spiral stairway near the en- 
trance to the chapel. The center of 
the altar will be an off-set wooden 

An area outside the building 
will be set aside for outdoor re- 
creation and the area across from 
the chapel will be designated for 
outdoor worship services. 

To Open In Fall 

If all goes according to schedule 
the Wesley Foundation will open 
with the fall semester. There are 
tentative plans for an open house 
and other formal ceremonies. 

The need for a new headquar- 
ters arose out of the overwhelm- 
ing participation of students on 
the campus. In order to fulfill 
their spiritual, mental and physi- 
cal needs the building had to grow. 
Thus the new Foundation became 
a dream, then blueprints and fin- 
ally, with the fall of 1963, a real-

Reservations Being 
Taken For Meeting 

Reservations are due now for all 
interested members of the Method- 
ist faith who intend to attend the 
regional leadership conference in 
Palestine, Texas, at the Lakeview 
Methodist Assembly from August 
24-31. Reservations can be made by 
contacting Bob Tatum at the Wes- 
ley Foundation. Transportation ar- 
rangements will be made through 
the Wesley. 


Dr. Leonard F. Fowler, princi- 
pal of Northwestern Elementary, 
has been elected president of the 
Natchitoches Lions Club. 

The outlook for the 1963 Demon 
football season looks good, despite 
the loss of 16 lettermen from the 

Twenty-nine players return, but 
this figure is misleading, because 
the NSC three team system pro- 
vided letters for 43 players. 

Coach Jack Clayton has lost 
Jackie Smith, Jerry Fowler and 
Kenny Thompson, a trio of all- 
GSC men, who are trying out for 
pro teams this year. 

Also missing will be defensive 
specialist, Larry Crow, and half- 
back Gary Moore. Centers Peter 
Verrett, Jerry Wren, guards Jack- 
ie Woods, Dickie Mason, Walter 
Weaver, and Gerald Yorbrough, 
tackles Ronnie Burgess, and Jerry 
Guidry, and end Kent Willoughby 
will also be gone. 

Beasley Key Man 

Key man in the Demon offense 
will be Don Beasley again this 
year. A leg injury reduced his ef- 
fectiveness last year, but only as 
a runner. He was a constant threat 
as a passer and sparked the De- 
mon offense. 

This year, the NSC running at- 
tack will be dependent on veterans 
Jerry Burton, and Glen Talbert, 
sophomores Ed Horton, Claude Pa- 
trick, Bobby Parker, and Roger 
Gorumba. Veterans G. W. Zach- 
ary and Tommy Wyatt will pro- 
bably again be used primarily on 

Donnie Carroll and Herbie Smith 
will probably share the quarter- 
back slot with Beasley, giving the 
team a topflight trio of operators. 

Returning Letterman 

Returning on the line are centers 
Sammy Odom, an all-GSC and all- 
NAIA selection in 1962, Tom Mit- 
chell and Fred Fulton; guards 
Allen Plummer, Grover Colvin, 
Darrell Mayes and Ronnie Daigle; 

tackles Charles Ragus, Freddie 
Newman, Don Gleason, Al Anding, 
and John Odom; ends Corwyn Al- 
dredge, Ken Hood, Johnny Nor- 
man, Roy Gentry, and Richard Ber- 

Several newcomers who are ex- 
pected to show in this year's De- 
mon lineup are ends Ross Gwinn 
and Dick Reding; tackle Frank 
Solis; guards Malcom Hodnet, 
Lawrence Nugent and Kenny Guil- 
lot; halfbacks James Aymond, Den- 
nis Duncan, and Gary Pittman; and 
fullbacks Harold Pitre and Mack 

Clayton's Problem 

Probably Coach Clayton's big- 
gest problem is the development 
of depth at center and guard. Best 
staffed of all positions is fullback 
where three players return. Claude 
Patrick, freshman all-GSC, 1962; 
Bobby Parker and G. W. Zachary 
are assisted by Harold Petrie and 
Mack Thomas in taking care of 
fullback slot. 

Overall, the Demons should have 
a fine running attack built around 
Glenn Talbert, Patrick and Horton. 
Burton, Parker, Pitre, Duncan, Ay- 
mond, Pittman and Gorumba are 
also expected to pile up yardage. 

Defensely, Clayton must find a 
replacement for Jackie Smith for 
the punting chores. Sophomore 
Wayne Walker seems to be the 
man, after he gets a bit of game 

The coaching staff will again 
consist of assistants Walter Ledet, 
offensive line; Alvin (Cracker) 
Brown, offensive backfield; Ernest

A Typical Day In The Life 
Of A College Student 

Mrs. W. N. Wright Sends Four Through 
NSC, Then Decides To Attend Herself 

Six members of the W. N. Wright 
family of Negreet have attended 
or are attending Northwestern. Pre- 
sently enrolled are Mrs. Mildred 
Wright, and her daughter, Miss 
Rita Lee Wright. 

In 1962 Gene Wright, all-Gulf 
States Conference basketballer of 
NSC received his bachelor of arts 
degree. Gene is married to the 
former Miss Sue Norman, who also 
attended Northwestern. 

Mrs. Wright's son-in-law, Ronald 
Knotts of Jacksonville, Fla., has re- 
ceived a bachelor of science de- 
gree with a major in electronics. 
Her daughter, Mrs. Gandy, gradu- 
ated from NSC with a BA degree. 

Of the two Wrights presently en- 
rolled, Mrs. Wright is a freshman 
English major. Rita Lee is also a 
first semester freshman, and is 
taking courses in mathematics, 
English and physical education. 

The older Wright commutes,

while the younger resides on camp- 

Besides the above mentioned 
children, Mrs. Wright is the mother 
of a daughter, Roma, 16, and a son, 
Tony, 10. Mrs. Wright was valedic- 
torian of her 1933 high school grad- 
uating class at Negreet. Following 
the examples of her children, she 
is attending Northwestern 30 years 
after high school. 



(Editor's Note: The following 
personal essay was written by Jo- 
seph Weinmunson, Sauce News Ed- 

I consider myself a typical col- 
lege student, although many of 
my professors, friends, and col- 
leagues would argue that point ve- 
hemently. I would like to give 
you an insight into the life of a 
college student by taking a typical 
day from my life. 

This particular morning, I arose 
rather early. After looking at my- 
self in the mirror and getting sick, 
I went down to the lavatory and 
brushed my teeth and combed my 
hair. While this didn't improve my 
appearance, I did feel somewhat 

The first item on the agenda 
was breakfast. I still shudder with 
pain when I think of our illustrious 
dining hall. That was the only 
place I've seen where the eggs 
were crispier than the toast. 

On To Class 

Following breakfast, I went to 
class. Here I must correct a com- 
mon misconception people have of 
college students. Many people pic- 
ture the typical college student sit- 
ting in class, rapt with attention, 
and drinking up the lucubrations 
of their illustrious professors. 
Brother! ! ! Most of my class time 
was spent sleeping or taking notes. 
I had one teacher that talked so 
fast that when I dropped my pen- 
cil one day, I found that I'd missed 
her discussion on the Civil War! 

Between classes, there was al- 
ways the field house, where one 
could enjoy good comradship with 
the gang. The gang in this case 
consisted of four card players who 
took each others money. 

Sleep, Then Supper 

The afternoon had only one prac- 

tical purpose — sleep! After sleep- 
ing for a few hours, I arose and 
prepared for supper. Unlike many 
of the other students, I did not 
rush to stand in line. I sauntered 
slowly, enjoying the wonderful 
view. The view was especially good 
on windy days. After forcing my- 
self to consume the material which 
was jokingly referred to as food, 
I returned to the dormitory for 
another rest period. 

Occassionally, I have a date. 
With girls, no less! This was one 
of those auspicious occasions. Af- 
ter picking Hortense up, we went 
to the movies. And what a movie! I 
was expecting the villian to run in 
with a mustasche and demand pay- 
ment for the mortgage. That's how 
old it was. 

After bringing Hortense back to 
her dorm, I returned to my own 
dorm, there to engage in a card 
game with my friends ?'. With 
friends like those, who needs ene- 
mies? I then called it a night, said 
my prayers, and surrendered to 
blissful sleep, eagerly anticipating 
another day.

Mrs. Kyser Fetes 
Miss Aase Nielsen 

Mrs. John S. Kyser recently held 
a farewell party for Miss Aase Niel- 
sen of Denmark. Miss Nielsen, a 
health and physical education 
teacher at Northwestern, will be 
returning to her native land at the 
close of summer school. Miss Joyce 
Hillard, of Minden, was honored 
with a welcome party at the same 
time. Miss Hillard will be joining 
the staff of physical education 
teachers in the fall. 

Those also attending the dinner 
party were Miss Melba O'Quinn,

To The 

Dear Sir: 

In regard to the editorial in the 
last issue on the evils of smoking 
and your plea to President Kyser, 
I would like to say this! 

Research has already proven the 
harm of smoking. It is now up to 
the individual to dceide if he wants 
to enjoy smoking and suffer the 

The withdrawal of tobacco adver- 
tisements from college newspapers 
was to prevent influencing some- 
one who doesn't smoke to start. 

Those unfortunate ones who have 
chosen to defy the warnings of pro- 
fessional researchers, will not heed 
the warning of lesser non-smokers. 
The removal of vending machines 
would have no effect on smokers, 
when cigarettes are so easy to pur- 
chase elsewhere. 

What would be accomplished? 
Nothing! How many would stop 
smoking? None.

Two Buildings To Be Opened In Fall 

Students traveling between Prud- 
homme Hall and the dairy may ob- 
serve a buzz of activity each day 
as workmen toil in the sun. The 
purpose of all this activity is the 
erection of a new Health and Phy- 
sical Education building on the 
Northwestern State College camp- 

Construction on the building, to 
be called the Coliseum, began in 
July of 1962. The building should 
be completed by September, 1963. 
This means that it will be in use 
during the coming term. 


According to Sylvan W. Nelken, 
Dean of Administration, the struc- 
ture is being built at an estimated 
cost of $lVz -million. These funds 
were allocated to Northwestern by 
the State Building and Bond Com- 
mission to be used specifically for 
this purpose. In order to raise the

California Meet 

President John S. Kyser of 
Northwestern State College has re- 
cently returned from Stanford Uni- 
versity in California, where he at- 
tended a five-day program as one 
of 25 college presidents, and other 
educators, studying campus plan- 

Three nationally recognized au- 
thorities in the field of college 
campus development guided the 
discussions. The small number of 
selected participants were expected 
to result in a maximum exchange 
of ideas among the educators. 

During the five-day conference, 
one entire day was devoted to an 
examination of the plant of San 
Mateo State College, which is ra- 
ther widely recognized as one that 
has been effectively designed to 
meet modern needs. Also included 
was the comparison of the Cali- 
fornia higher education organiza- 
tion with patterns of other states 
in the discussions by the educators.

Annual Summer Picnic 

Held By Newman Club 

Newman Club of Northwestern 
State Collge held their annual 
summer picnic Saturday, July 20, 
along the banks of Cane River 
at the "Hughes Camp". The group 
played games, swam, skied and 
fished during the day. Delicious 
out-door cooked-food was enjoyed, 
and later in the afternoon the 
group enjoyed the dancing which 
was provided at the camp.

building on the campus. The building will be ready for

funds for this, and other state 
building programs, the state in- 
agurated a $60-million bond issue. 

The total dimensions of the 
building are 310 feet by 300 feet. 
Although the building is to be used 
mostly for sporting events, class- 
rooms and offices are included. The 
NSC coaching staff will have the 
use of these offices, and the physi- 
cal education teachers will remain 
housed in their present building. 

Architects for the building are 
Butler and Dobson, Natchitoches. 
The construction was awarded to 
the Granite Construction Co. of 
Houston, Texas, who submitted the 

lowest bid. 

Some Features 

Some of the features of the Col- 
iseum include air conditioning, 
dressing rooms for the home and 
visiting teams, a 110 by 241 foot 
asphalt arena, a portable stage, and 
a sectional basketball floor, which 
will be stored away when not in 

Dean Nelken said that plans are 
now being made to have a parking 
area adjacent to the Coliseum. This 
parking area will accommodate 
about 1,000 vehicles. This will be 
done as soon as sufficient funds 
are procured. 

PROGRESS IS BEING MADE on the new men's dormitory, 
tentatively named Bossier Hall. The building is expected 
to be ready for occupancy sometime in November, (photo 
by Lamar Bates) 

Construction has begun on a new 
men's dormitory situated between 
St. Denis Cafeteria and the laun- 
dry. The proposed name for the 
structure is Bossier Hall, and it will 
house 218 students. 

According to Dudley Fulton, di- 
rector of student relations, and Hal 
Townsend, director of men's hous- 
ing, the building will be four stor- 
ies and will have lounges on the 
first and second floors. It will con- 
tain four single rooms, two tripple 
rooms, and all others will contain 
two occupants. 

Central Air 

The building will feature central 
air conditioning, built-in furniture, 
and a house director's apartment. 
The house director has not been 
chosen as yet. In addition, there 
will be outside stairways and a 
combination walkway-balcony 
which will be located on every 
floor. Parking space will be avail- 
able for about 50 per cent of the 

Fulton said that NSC is over- 
crowded and that the college is 

building new dormitories as quick- 
ly as possible. The big problem is 
funds. The state has largely quit 
building dormitories, and the 
schools are being more or less 
forced to raise their own dormitory 
funds. The cost of this structure is 
about $600,000, and the funds were 
borrowed by the college in order 
to finance it. 

Completion Soon 

Work on the building was begun 
in November, 1962, and will prob- 
ably be completed in November, 
1963. The building will probably 
be immediately occupied at that 
time to alleviate the overcrowded 
conditions which will exist in other 
dorms. Rooms in Bossier Hall will 
be assigned on seniority when pos- 
sible. Students who have been here 
the longest, such as seniors, will 
have the first choice. The dormi- 
tory will not be for freshmen. 

The architect for the building is 
William H. Woodward of Lake 
Charles. Construction is being car- 
ried out by the Tudor Construction 
Co. of Alexandria.

its activities centered in the De- 
partment of Social Sciences. It is 
a non-profit organization dedicated 
to the encouragement of research 
in all fields dealing primarily with 
Louisiana and its regional setting. 
Other members of the faculty also 
serve on this board and Dr. George 
A. Stokes serves as chairman of 
the group.

Commentary Given 
On "Shift" Dress 

(Editor's Note: The following 
commentary on the "shift" dress 
was written by Joe Weinmunson, 
Sauce News Editor. True it is that 
Mr. Weinmunson may be writing 
out of his field. Read his comments 
and see.) 

The latest fad with regard to fe- 
male wearing apparel is the so- 
called "shift" dress. I fail to com- 
prehend the connotation of this 
word unless it can be taken in con- 
text to mean that the dress "shifts" 
about six inches higher when a belt 
is added. 

Seriously, though, the shift has a 
long and distinguished history. It 
appeared in ancient Greece under 
the name of togas. They retained 
their great popularity throughout 
the Roman era, but were gradually 
supplanted by other modes of 

A variation of the shift was pop- 
ular a few years back under the 
name of the "sack" dress. Upon 
close examination, I found little 
difference between the two. Sack 
dresses were the latest thing for 
a long time, comparatively speak- 
ing, but they were gradually re- 
placed with new and different fads. 

Please do not misunderstand me. 
I have nothing personal against 
"shift" dresses. I mean, if girls 
want to wear them and look silly, 
that's their business. I will say, 
however, that the looks of the fe- 
male wearing one are sometimes 
decreased, rather than increased. 
I have seen girls that looked very 
attractive in them. On the other 
hand, I have seen girls that looked 
abominable in them. It depends on 
whether or not the girl wears a 
belt with the dress. Most of the 
disparaging comments I hear 
against the "shift" dress are about 
those worn without a belt. 

From what I have been able to 
glean in my usual bull sessions 
around campus, the male segment 
of Northwestern's population is not 
overly exuberent about the "shift" 
dress. Some of the comments heard 
around this campus include: "Girls 
who wear shift dresses look like 
they're wearing tents!," "The fe- 
male form should be accentuated, 
rather than concealed!." "They are 
gross!," "Shift dresses give a girl 
an overall sloppy appearance!," and 
"Some of the girls wearing them 
had better have on bathing suits if 
they add a belt." I would also like 
it noted that some of these com- 
ments came from women. 

There is just one thing to say 
after this discussion. I think the 
girls should stop and take stock of 
the situation. How about it, girls?

By Crabby Schnellbesenbinder 

Dear Crabby, 

I have a problem. I'm getting awfully big around the waist, 
and no matter how much I diet, my measurements keep getting 
larger, and I don't have any clothes to fit me, except an old 
sweatshirt. What should I do? 


Dear Worried, 

I woudn't be too concerned, 
you probably just swallowed a 
pumpkin seed. It won't take it 
long to get ripe. 


Dear Crabby, 

I'm a girl and my problem is 
a boy. It goes this way: this boy 
works in the same place I do, and 
I'm crazy-mad about him. I have 
bit off all my fingernails. 

Right now we are just buddies. 
He thinks I'm a swell kid, but I 
want more than friendship. I'm 
crazy-mad about him. 

How can I let him know how I 
feel and entice him to ask me 
for a date? I'd like some hugs and 
kisses. My lips are chapped and 
I'm crazy-mad about him. Besides, 
I'd like to let my fingernails grow 
back. Who ever heard of bald fin- 
gers anyway? Do you think he 
doesn't like me cause I don't have 

Nippy No Nails. 

Dear Nails, 

Bald fingernails? I can't believe 
that! Well, I can believe it, I just 
can't accept it. At any rate, it 
seems that if you were to wear box- 
ing gloves, he'd notice you, but 

you might discourage any advan- 
ces on his part. 

The best bet, I think would be 
to hide behind the door and when 
he comes in just pounce upon him. 
He won't have time to notice your 
short fingernails. 

Dear Crabby, 

I am worried sick. The grades 
on my first round of tests have 
been posted. My scores were low, 
low, low. In fact, I'll need to make 
an "A" on my next three tests in 
order to have a high enough aver- 
age to maintain an F- average. 

My friends have encouraged me 
to "borrow" copies of the next 
exams ahead of time. Should I? 

Social Worker 

Dear Worker, 

If your friends encouraged you 
to jump out of an airplane without 
a parachute, would you? By the 
way, if you can get the Journalism 
320 exam, let me know.

New Library 
Policies Made 

Announcement was made this 
week by Northwestern State Col- 
lege Librarian Dr. Eugene Watson, 
that the Russell Library has adopt- 
ed a new policy governing the reg- 
ular loan period on books taken 
out of the library. 

For many years, the general- 
circulation books have gone out 
on two-week loan periods, with the 
privilege of renewal for another 
two weeks. But, effective with the 
opening of the fall semester, the 
policy has been liberalized; and 
the regular loan period is now one 
month, with the privilege of re- 
newal for an additional month. 

Another policy change relates to 
the materials in the Library's "cur- 
riculum laboratory." Heretofore 
use of those materials was restrict- 
ed to the Library Building, but ef- 
fective this semester, the books, 
phamplets, and other materials in 
the curriculum laboratory can be 
checked out for one week. The loan 
may not be renewed. 

The loan policies regarding re- 
serve books, magazines, vertical 
file materials, etc. remains un-

Dr. Leonard Fowler, Associate 
Professor of Education at North- 
western State College, delivered 
the principal address at the first 
Parent-Teacher Association meet- 
ing of Northwestern Elementary 
School. His topic was "The School 
and You." 



A Beginning Statement 

With this first issue of the "Current Sauce" we think it 
a good thing to set forth a statement of purpose, principal and 
hope. In forthcoming issues you will notice vast changes in the 
paper from previous years— changes we think will better the 
paper in every respect. 

The primary job of any college newspaper is self-evident: 
to cover the college news field. During the next two semesters 
the "Current Sauce" will strive to be an organ of information 
for students, faculty, parents and alumni. 

We intend to maintain a balance between different types 
of news. It shall not be our objective to deliberately playup one 
type of news, while at the sametime playdown another type. 

It is our intent to have a vigorous editorial page made up 
of our views in both editorial and cartoon form. We shall at- 
tempt to make the editorial page the heart of our paper. In it 
we shall show the personality and individuality of our paper. 
The "Sauce" encourages students, administrators and faculty 
and staff members to voice their opinions through the "Letters 
to the Editor" column. 

In future issues you will notice a marked improvement in 
makeup. We will strive to make the "Sauce" look neat, attrac- 
tive and be easy to read. 

Ample space will be devoted to society and sports news. 
In addition the "Sauce" will contain feature articles and re- 

It's a hard job and it takes a lot of work to put out a good 
college newspaper. Of course our peper will have faults, all 
newspapers do. But with the co-operation of students, faculty 
and administrators these faults can easily be ironed out and the 
"Current Sauce" will be one of the better college newspapers 

Letters to the Editor Policy 

The "Current Sauce" accepts and encourages letters to 
the editor from students, faculty and staff members and ad- 

All letters will be published whether or not they concur 
with the opinions of this newspaper staff, as long as they are 
in good taste and are concerned withmatters relating to the 

We ask that all letters be typed double-spaced and limited 
to 150 words, although letters longer will accepted. All letters 
must be signed, although if good reasons is given, names will 
be withheld. 

May we hear from you? 

Listen To the Chimes 

Daily the campus and surrounding town area is bathed 
in a 15 minute concert of chimes which originates from the 
Fine Arts Building. 

This concert provides a few minutes of relaxing music, 
which soothes and smooths one's nerves after a hard day of 
study. The time chosen for the concert is excellent — every 
evening at dinnertime. 

However, aside from the fact that the music isn't always 
chosen well, "Winter Wonderland" was played one evening 
this summer, and during a freezing rainstorm last winter, one 
could discern strains of "Summertime" drifting from the loud- 
speakers — there is but one criticism. The person in charge of 
production seems to turn the machine off at exactly 5:15 every 
day regardless of where the needle is in the groove of the par- 
ticular number. 

The chimes are rapidly becoming a tradition at North- 
western, and we are the first to praise the "idea." Perhaps 
with a little bit of care the chimes can become more of an asset 
to NSC.

To The 

Mr. Robert Gentry, editor 
N.S.C. Current Sauce 
Dear Mr. Gentry: 

Let me take this means of com- 
mending you for your splendid edi- 
ment" which appeared in the July 
12 issue of the "Current Sauce." 
I consider this statement to have 
come from a courageous student 
leader who recognizes the respon- 
sibility that comes with an intelli- 
gent understanding of the results 
of objective scientific investigation. 
These are qualities which are 
found too seldom in readers in any 

In short, let me commend you for 
this splendid example of good 
journalism. I hope to come to know 
you personally in the coming year. 

Sincerely yours, 
George A. Kemp, Ph.D. 
Assistant Professor of Psychology 

(Editor's Note: Thank you Dr. 
Kemp for your comment on the 

It should be pointed out for the 
benefit of students who did not 
attend summer school that the ed- 
itorial concerned the action of ma- 
jor cigaret manufacturers in drop- 
ping advertising in college publica- 
tions. This step was taken to fore- 
stall growing criticism of the com- 
panies' efforts to encourage young 
people to smoke. 

The editorial called on Dr. Kyser 
to ban all form of tobacco adver- 
tising on the Northwestern campus. 
We were disappointed when Dr. 
Kyser took no action.) 

I'm not going to do like every- 
one else, and welcome you back to 
Northwestern, because you've been 
back long enough now to have re- 
accustomed yourself to college life. 
I will say that you dogs sure did 
miss out by not being able to have 
your hair cut. It's a great experi- 
ence. I went through it last year, 
and I wouldn't trade my Dog Days 
for a polka-dotted jelly bean. 

School has begun again, and the 
chaotic days of registration are be- 
hind us. I presume you all had a 
wild summer. I did, I spent the 
first two months at dear old NSC, 
trying to get in a few extra hours. 
During the glorious month of Aug- 
ust, I spent my time on the beach- 
es around home in Virginia. 

Instigated In Summer 

For those of you who aren't fa- 
miliar with this column, it was in- 
stigated during the summer to fill 
up space which might otherwise 
have been used to advantage by 
the editor. This semester, I have 
decided that this column will have 
a specific purpose, to fill up space 
which might have been used ad- 
vantageously by the editor. 

While primarily this column is 
humorous, (people laugh at it in- 
stead of about it), you'll find poli- 
tical overtones, gripes, and other 
assorted musings within these col- 
umn inches. 

Many of you worried some when 
the edict came out in a summer 
issue that there would be no more 
tobacco ads in the "Sauce." Never 
fear, the Max Schulman column 
brought to you by a well-known 
brand of cigarettes is still with us, 
although it is about the only weed 
ad in our pages. 

Well, I see that my inches are 
about up, so remember that the

Student Council 

SEPTEMBER 16, 1963 

The meeting was called to order 
by President Sonny Hargrove. As 
the first order of business, last 
year's financial report was read. 

Hargrove brought up the idea of 
having a victory symbol that would 
go to the winner of the Louisiana 
College-NSC football game. It was 
suggested that we have a shield 
which would have NSC and a De- 
mon Head on one half and LC and 
a wildcat on the other half. The 
cost of the shield would be split 
between the schools. After a dis- 
cussion, the motion was passed. 

Freshman class officers will be 
elected in three weeks. 

Roy Corley has been appointed 
chairman of the committee which 
will interview and select freshman 
associates for the council. Other 
committee members are J. 0. Char- 
rier, Vince Cuellor, Randy Webb, 
Sonny Hargrove and Carolyn 

Vince Cuellor brought up the 
idea of having a dance Saturday 
night. Butch Chase suggested that 
we wait and have the dance later 
since our social budget is limited. 
Dean Fulton suggested that we 
have a "Hootenanny" in the Little 
Theater. Steve Blount made a mo- 
tion that we check into the possi- 
bility. It was seconded by Randy 
Webb. Blount was appointed as 
chairman of a committee to check 
the possibility. Lewis Stahl, Fred 
Combs and Joe Butler compose the 

Hargrove reported that plans are 
nearing completion for the NSC- 
Louisiana Tech banquet to be held 
before the football game. He re- 
ported that the Crystal Ball Room 
in Shreveport had been reserved 
and that a menu had been submit- 
ted by the catering service. 

Roy Corley asked if the grass 
could be cut around the tennis 
courts. Randy Webb suggested that 
a salt dispenser be placed near the 
tennis courts, and that cold water 
be available at the tennis courts. 

There being no further business, 
Chase made a motion that the meet- 
ing be adjourned, seconded by 

Respectfully submitted, 
Carolyn Thomas, Secretary 

This is an excerpt from a letter 
written by a freshman girl to her 
parents : 

". . . and I am gaining weight on 
this awful food they serve me at 
the dining hall, too. I weigh 120 
stripped, but I don't know whether 
those scales down in front of the 
drug store or right or not." 

Kate Chopin Hall is now being 
used as a men's dormitory for the 
first time. 

A recent request for a quotation 
sent out by the Purchasing Office 
reads: "Preference is hereby given 
to materials, supplies and provis- 
ions produced, manufactured or 
grown in Louisiana, quality being 
equal to articles offered by compe- 
titors outside the state." 

We think this is a good thing to 
do, and it would be beneficial for 
businesses all over the state to do 
the same thing. 

The sharpest thing seen in many 
moon in these parts was the honor 
gaurd (accompanying the Indian 
in a pre-game presentation at last 
week-end's football game) furnish- 
ed by the ROTC unit of Northwest- 

Actually those SFASC folks 
hadn's planned to win the game, 
they didn't even bring a truck, or 
some other conveyance, to haul the 
Indian back to Nacogdoches, by 
virtue of their gridiron victory. 

Among the many folks from Nac- 
ogdoches at Saturday night's grid 
game was Dr. Joe Gerber, who's 
dean at SFASC. He used to hold 
down Dudley Fulton's student af- 
fairs job here. 

Guess the players ought to be 
ready for the Louisiana College 
Wildcats next timeout, because 
their mentors had them working 
out in the rain here at the stadium 
Tuesday afternoon. 

Dean Nelken is just about the 
earliest riser on campus. During 
the summer which construction 
work on Louisiana Hall being 
pushed, it was no uncommon sight 
to find him coming and going 
from the edifice under way a- 
round 6 a.m.

Demons Upset By SFA; 
Lose Opening Tilt, 10-0 

by Rick Woodson 
Sauce Sports Writer 

Northwestern State College's 
Demons ran into an ambush 
at State Fair Stadium Saturday 
night prepared by Stephen F. Aus- 
tin as the Lumberjacks stunned 
the Demons 10-0 in the season's 
opener for both squads. 

Chief Caddo, the seven-foot 
wooden Indian, will spend the next 
year in Nacogdoches as a result, 
after a one-year visit to the NSC 
Student Center. 

NSC outweighed the Axemen, 
but SFA's lightning speed offset 
the advantage as the Texas squad 
ran up 180 yards on the ground 
to only 54 for the Demons. Half- 
back Jerry Clement led SFA with 
86 yards on 22 carries, while 
Claude Patrick paced Northwest- 
ern with 31 yards on 6 tries from 
his fullback position. 

In The Air 

In the air, NSC's Donnie Car- 
roll pitched for 141 yards, con- 
necting on six of 15 aerials. John- 
ny Norman hauled down five pass- 
es good for 111 yards with bril- 
liant catches. The Lumberjacks 
managed only 68 yards via the air 
ways, and had a slight advantage 
on total offense, 248-227. 

SFA used just 16 men for over 
three quarters, but the Texans 
were "up" for the Demons and 
the 16 proved to be enough when 
challenged with an NSC threat. 

The first score of the game 
came on the second play of the 
second period when Robert Neff 
plunged in from the one The De- 
mons had held the Jacks for three 
downs, but a pass interference call 
in . the endzone gave a first and 
goal on the one, and Neff scored 
on the fourth play. Jackie Rober- 

son toed the point after and the 
Lumberjacks led 7-0. 

Inside The 10 

SFA again drove inside the De- 
mon 10 later in the second quar- 
ter, where the NSC defenses stop- 
ped the drive cold. But on fourth 
down Roberson kicked a 29 yard 
field goal and the Jacks led 10-0 
and carried that lead into the | 
dressing room at halftime. 

After a scoreless third quarter, 
the Demons came to life, taking 
over on their own 20 and march- 
ing down to the SFA 13 on the 
strength of a 52 yard pass play 
from Carroll to Norman. 

The drive fizzled at the four, 
however, and SFA punted on first 
down. Again the Demons threat- 
ened from the Jacks 18, but Oscar 
Cripps picked a Donald Beasley 
pass to kill that threat. 

Waning Moments 

In the waning moments of the 
game NSC moved down to the Ste- 
phen F. Austin one, first and goal, 
with Carroll passing to Norman 
twice for most of the yardage Full- 
back Bobby Parker failed to tally 
on first down and two ensuing 
aerials were for naught. On fourth 
down Patrick swept his left end 
and when the play was over his 
head was in the end zone, but the 
pigskin was inche s away and the 
Demons were held scoreless as 
SFA ran out the clock. 

After the disheartening loss to 
SFA the Demons have an open 
date this Saturday, and the follow- 
ing week travel to Pineville to 
tangle with Louisiana College. 
With two weeks to iron out the 
rough spots NSC should return to 
the form that enabled them to win 
the Gulf States Conference title 
last year.

Social Qt/lu/U 


This year Epsilon Beta Chapter 
welcomes several transferring sis- 
ters into their group. They are: 
Jacque Foster from Louisiana Tech, 
Linda Mills from Southern Method- 
ist University, and Ruby Carlile 
who is back on campus after com- 
pleting her clinical work. 

Delta Zeta is also happy to wel- 
come Cecilia Shea, Judy Winn, 
Heloise Christy, and Sandra Cork- 
ern into her sisterhood. After their 
initiation, a coke party was given 
in their honor by Delta Zeta's Man 
of the Year, Shelley Bennett. 


Delta Mu Chapter of Sigma Kap- 
pa held its fall initiation on Friday 
Sept. 13, at the Sigma Kappa 
House. Following the initiation a 
special ceremony was held for the 
new initiates in their honor by pre- 
senting them with special old fash- 
ion colonial bouquet of lavender 
flowers with maroon and lavender 
streamers and ribbon. A small in- 
formal followed the ceremony at 
which new members presented the 
chapter with a gift for the Sigma 
Kappa house. 

The new sisters of Sigma Kappa 
initiated were Ann Lewis, Jannette 
Edwards, Gail Tood, Carolyn Mc- 
Neely, Lindagaye Olive and Jowan- 
na Looper. 

News also comes that Mary Lynn 
Calloway is now a student at the 
University of Southwestern where 
she is now majoring in interior de- 
corating. Also, a former resident 
and a Sigma Kappa sister, Mrs. 
Betty Brown Fusilier is the mother 
of a baby boy, Jeffery Charles who 
was born August 27. 


Kappa Alpha Order social fra- 
ternity was formed on this campus 
only two and half months ago. The 
main goal of Kappa Alpha Order 
is to retain the Southern way of 
life, the Southern gentlemen and 
the high ideals of the Kappa Al- 
pha Order. It has always been their 
greatest wish to bring a Southern 
fraternity to our campus, located 
in the heart of the South. 

The group not only sponsored 
various social functions but also 
participated, for the third straight 
year, in the KA Charity Bowl foot- 
ball game (originated by KA in 
1959), and took an active part in 
the extra curricular life of the col- 
lege. Members of KA were active 
in student government, the mili- 
tary, and in honorary, scholastic 
and service fraternities. 

On Sept. 16, Kappa Alpha Order 
began its rush for this year with 
their "smoker" held in the field 
house which proved to be a huge 
success. Many other activities have 
been planned for those men inter- 
ested in Kappa Alpha Order. 


The weekend of August 16-17, 
Tri Sigma's held their workshop at 
the YMCA camp near Forbing. 
Rush plans wore made for this 
year's rush. 

Recently the Alpha Zeta chapter 
of Tri Sigma welcomed a new mem- 
ber Miss Cindy Fitzgerald, a new 
initiate and Miss Maureen Andrews, 
a nursing student back from clini-

On Campus 

(By the Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!", and, 
"Barefoot Boy With Cheek.") 


Today I begin my tenth year of writing this column in your 
campus newspaper. Ten years is a long time; it is, in fact, what 
some scholarly people like to call a decade— from the Latin 
word deccum, meaning the floor of a ship. It is, to my mind, 
remarkable that the Romans had such a word as deccum when 
you consider that ships did not exist until 1620 when John 
Alden invented the Mayflower. Alden, a prodigiously ingenious 
man, also invented the ear lobe and Pocahontas. 

Ships were a very popular mode of travel— especially over 
water— until 1912 when the Swede, Ivar Krueger, invented the 
iceberg. Krueger also invented the match, which is a good 
thing, because without the match, how would you light your 
Marlboro Cigarettes? I cannot overstress the importance of 
lighting your Marlboro Cigarettes, for Marlboro Cigarettes, 
unlighted, provide, at best, only limit - \ smoking pleasure. 

"pi Ml em cilH Mh} or %OMltell 

I mention Marlboros because this column is an advertise- 
ment, brought to you through the school year by the makers 
of Marlboros. Marlboros come in soft pack or Flip-Top box. 
The makers of Marlboros come in dark suits with thin lapels 
—except on weekends when they come in yoke-neck jerseys 
and white duck trousers. White ducks come in flocks. They are 
primarily fresh water dwellers, although they have been suc- 
cessfully raised in salt water too. Another salt water denizen 
I'm sure you will find enjoyable is plankton— a mess of tiny 
organisms like diatoms and algae and like that which float 
sluggishly near the surface of the sea. It is ironic that these 
creatures, microscopic in size, should supply the principal 
source of food for the earth's largest animal, the whale. Whales, 
I must say, are not at all pleased with this arrangement, be^ 
cause it takes the average whale, eating steadily, 48 hours to 
gather a day's meal. This leaves them almost no time for 
water sports or reading Melville. It is a lucky thing for all of 
us that whales are unaware they are mammals, not fish, and 
could, if they tried, live just as well on land as in water. I 
mean, you add ten or twelve million whales to our Sunday 
traffic and you would have congestion that makes the mind 

But I digress. Today, I was saying, I begin my tenth year of 
writing this column for Marlboro Cigarettes in your campus 
newspaper. I will, in each column, say a few kind words about 
Marlboros-just as you will, once you try that fine tobacco 
flavor, that pristine white filter, that supple soft pack, that 
infrangible Flip-Top box. These references to Marlboro will be 
brief and unobtrusive, for I do not believe in the hard sell 
What I favor is the soft sell-you might even call it the limp 
or spongy sell. I hasten to state that the makers of Marlboro 
m ten full years have not once complained about my desultory 
sales approach. Neither have they paid me. 

But that is of small consequence. Aside from fleeting mentions 
of Marlboro, this column has another, and more urgent, mission- 
to cast the hot white light of free inquiry upon the vexing 
questions that trouble college America -questions like "Should 
the Student Council have the power to levy tariffs? and "Are 
roommates sanitary?" and "Should housemothers be com- 
pelled to retire upon reaching the age of 26?'! 

Perhaps, reasoning together, we can find the answers. Per- 
haps not. But if we fail, let it never be said that it was for 
want of trying. 

I thank you.

State Fair Court 
Election Slated 

Already looking forward to the 
State Fair Game with Louisiana 
Tech, the elections committee to- 
day laid plans for the selection of 
the queen and her court. Vincent 
Quellar, student body vice-presi- 
dent advised the "Current Sauce" 
that the same procedures would 
be followed this year that seemed 
so successful last fall. 

Men's dormitory residents will 

again have the responsibilty of 
nominating the candidates. The 
elections committee will tally the 
nominations and the lucky 18 girls 
receiving the highest number of 
nominations would make the slate 
of candidates to be voted on in an 
election held in conjunction with 
the Freshman class elections, Oct. 

Voters would be permitted to 
vote for the nine girls they would 
like to see make up the court, with 
each student having nine votes. 
The girl receiving the highest num- 
ber of votes would be State Fair 
Queen and reign over the days 

The next eight girls receiving 
the next highest number of votes 
would make up the court of her 
royal highness. Just in case of a 
tie vote in the eighth and ninth 
spot, the elections committtee has 
decreed that this position would be 
decided by a flip of a coin. 

Quellar explained that the elec- 
tion was being scheduled at this 
time so as to enable the winner 
sto have an opportunity to study 
and prepare their wardrobes. He 
also stated that voting machines 
would not be available at a later 
date because of the state elections 
to be held this fall.

Application Forms 
Should Be Filled 

Students successfully completing 
their freshman year and intending 
to pursue a degree in teacher edu- 
cation must make formal applica- 
tion for admission to their selected 
program this fall, according to Dr. 
W. F. Beyer, Jr., assistant to the 
dean of the School of Education 
and director of student teaching. 

Advisers were reminded of this 
requirement recently in a memo- 
randum from Dr. Beyer. Necessary 
forms will be made available to ad- 
visers upon request. These must 
be completed in addition to a self 
evaluation form which teacher edu- 
cation candidates must also com-

First Hootenanny Successful; 
May Become A Weekend Affair 

Last Saturday evening marked | 
the first in what may become a 
weekend tradition at N.S.C.-the 
Hootennany. Three folk groups of 
local and imported talent were en- 
thusiasticly received by a capicity 
audience of weekend entertain- 
ment starved students. 

Although there were only three 
groups at this first "folk-fest," they 
exibited a great range of song ma- 
terial and talent. "Jerry, Don, and 
Jerry" opened, closed and com- 
pletely dominated the entire show. 
Their selections ranged from the 
fast paced "Greenback Dollar" to 
"Cruel War," which they did with 
the assistance of Rita Barnard, who 
proved to be a great asset. Their 

style showed a bit of the Kingston 
Trio, the Brothers Four, and P.P.&. 
M., plus a great deal of originality. 

The other two groups, "The New 
River" Four" 'and the "Harry Mea- 
chum Trio," showed a good deal of 
promise. "The New River Four" 
did among its selections an orig- 
inal song, "Work Work, Work". 
When Harry Meachum's trio sang 
"Michael Rowed the Boat Ashore," 
the clear vibrant voice of Bettie 
Moore was all that kept Michael's 
boat and the whole group from 

As a whole, the first hootenany 
was well appreciated by the aud- 
ience and provided a Saturday 
evening well spent.

Faculty Members 
Work On Degrees 

Five faculty members completed 
work on doctorates during the sum- 
mer of 1963. 

They include Gordon D. Healey 
and Leroy Eversull of the Social 
Science Department, James Radley 
of the Physical Science Depart- 
ment, and Robert Alost of the De- 
partment of Health and Physical 

Miss Violet Davion completed all 
work toward a doctorate, minus 
a dissertation. She is associated 
with the Department of Health and 
Physical Education. 

Eversull and Alost received their 
degrees from Louisiana State Uni- 
versity, Healey attended the Uni- 
versity of Texas and Radley went 
to the University of Missouri. Miss 
Davion worked at the University 
of Arkansas. 

Work is progressing on the Wesley Foundation located 
on College Ave. The new air conditioned structure is ex- 
pected to be completed by mid-October. 

Plans are now being made to 
add three new buildings costing 
$3,450,000 on the Northwestern 
State College campus, President 
John S. Kyser told the "Current 
Sauce" this week. 

These include a student center 
to cost $1,450,000, a 300-unit wo- 
men's dormitory to cost $l-million 
and a 300-unit men's dormitory also 
to cost $l-million. 

President Kyser, Dean of Admin- 
istration Sylvan Nelken and Di- 
rector of Student Relations Dudley 
G. Fulton met with architects earl- 
ier this week to discuss plans for 
the proposed student center. 

The same college officials have 
previously met with architects to 
discuss the women's and men's 

"The financing for these pro- 
jects is also in the planning stage," 
Dean Nelken said. "We might get 
the funds through private enter- 

In other building developments 
on campus, a site just east of the 
men's gymnasium has been sur- 
veyed for the new $400,000 admin- 
istration building. 

Architects have submitted plans 
to college officials for the new 
building. Funds for this building 
were allocated by the Louisiana 
Bond and Building Commission. 

Dean Nelken said that Caldwell 
Hall, which presently houses ad- 
ministrative offices, would prob- 
ably be converted into a classroom 
building. He said some of the build- 
ing would probably remain in of- 
fice space. 

Yearbook Pictures 
To Be Taken Mon. 

Class pictures for the 1964 Pot- 
pourri, Northwestern State College 
Yearbook, will be taken in the 
green room of the Fine Arts Audi- 
torium beginning Monday and con- 
tinuing through Friday. Pictures 
will be taken between 1-4:30 p.m.

urged to have his picture made at 
the time designated for his class. 

The schedule is: Sept. 30, sen- 
iors and graduate students; Oct. 1, 
juniors; Oct. 2, sophomores; and 
Oct. 3, freshmen. 

The photographer will remain 
here through Friday in order to 
give all students an opportunity 
to have their class pictures taken.

Enrollment Up 
Over Last Fall 

Enrollment figures for the fall 
semester indicate that Northwest- 
ern State College has increased 
over last fall's enrollment by 244 
students, and that men students 
again outnumber women students 
by one. 

Total enrollment is 3,727. Men 
students total 1,864 and women stu- 
dents number 1,863. 

The School of Applied Arts and 
Sciences shows the largest gain 
over 1962, with 60 pupils more en- 
rolled this year. The School of Arts 
and Sciences has 25 students over 
last year's enrollment and the 
School of Education has gained 35. 

Nursing students included one 
male last year, but five men are 
now engaged in the nursing pro- 

Graduate students number 308 
over last year's total of 190, a gain 
of 118. - 

Women students dominate the 
Schools of Education and Nursing, 
and men outnumber women in the 
Schools of Arts and Sciences and 
Applied Arts and Sciences. 

In 1962, men numbered 1,817 and 
women totaled 1,666 for a total of 
3,483. Now, however, the ratio of 
males over females is lower. 

Council Votes 
Wage Increase 

The Student Council voted Mon- 
day night to raise the wages of 
the bookkeeper for the student 
loan fund to the same level as that 
of other student workers on the 
campus. C. L. (Butch) Chase point- 
ed out that all of the other student 
bookkeepers had been given a 
raise at the beginning of the semes- 
ter and the Council must approve 
this particular raise. 

A safety committee was appoint- 
ed to meet with Dr. Guy Nesom to 
establish rules for the new swimm- 
ing area on Chaplin Lake. 

Dean Dudley Fulton asked the 
members of the Council to discuss 
plans for financing a new student 
center, with students. Fulton point- 
ed out that the students would be 
required to pay for the new build- 
ing, and their opinions on the mat- 
ter should be considered before 
any action was taken. He estimated 
it woud take about 40 years to pay 
for the building. 

Officials Search 
For Lost Student 

College officials and Natchitoches 
Parish law enforcement officials 
were kept busy and worried most 
of the day Wednesday trying to 
locate a lost Northwestern State 
College student. 

James Wall of Vivian was re- 
ported lost to the City Police about 
10:30 a.m. Wednesday. He was last 
seen on campus about 2 a.m. 

Officials made a thorough search 
of the campus. Wall finally phoned 
college officials about 6 p.m.. He 
was in Baton Rouge. 

Interviews Set 
During October 

Representatives from private 
companies and governmental agen- 
cies will interview students in the 
Placement Office during October, 
according to Joe Webb, director. 

The following is a listing of 
dates : Oct. 15, Pan Geo Atlas Corp- 
oration; Oct. 22 and 25, Welex Com-

Secretary Joe W. Webb, who ex- 
pects a record number of former 
students and graduates to return 
to the campus for the day's activi- 


Although details are incomplete,

Election Is Drawing Near- 
Be Sure To Register To Vote 

The "Current Sauce" this week joins the Louisiana State 
Sovereignty in urging students and faculty members at North- 
western State College to register so that they may vote in the 
upcoming Democratic Primary or General Election. We believe 
the best government results when the most people participate, 
and that those who vote are more likely to demand and get 
good government. 

So now are you convinced that you want to register to 
vote? You must remember that when you become a voter, you 
then become a full-fledged citizen. 

To register to vote is far more simple than registering to 
start college. It takes a little time and a little trouble, but it is 
worth it to have a say as to how your nation, state, parish and 
city should be run. 

The next question: Are you eligible to apply? Yes, if you 
are a citizen, will be 21 by the next election which is December 
7, and have been a resident of Louisiana a year, of the parish 
for six months and your precinct for three months. 

When you apply, you'll need identification, such as a 
driver's license. 

You'll also need to know how old you are in years, months 
and days. 

You must be able to declare that you have not been con- 
victed of a feloney, or of certain misdemeanors (other than 
traffic or game laws) within certain prior periods. 

You will need to have some elementary knowledge about 
state and federal law and history — mostly things which you've 
known for years. If you're worried about this, ask the Regis- 
trar of Voters to let you read a pamphlet about citizenship. 

State law does not permit a Registrar, or anyone else, to 
give you any help while you are registering. But you have 40 
minutes to register, far more than enough time. 

Finally, if you make a mistake (and college students and 
faculty members are capable of doing this)- just go back in 10 
days and try again. 

Remember, you ought to register right away because 
registration books close 30 days before an election. 

Governor Jimmie H. Davis has warned that "our nation, 
our state and even our individual citizens are under increasing 
pressures these days by those who would replace government 
'by the people' with centralized socialistic control." 

"Our greatest weapon against such creeping tyranny," 
the governor declared, "Is still the individual vote, cast for 
those in every contest who will fight for government as con- 
ceived by the writers of the U.S. Constitution." 

Remember, to vote you must register; to register you must 
present yourself 30 days before an election. Take this responsi- 
bility, register and vote. 


Notes From 
Underground No. 1 

The Annuual Convention of The 
Remnants of the Human Race 
(South-Central U.S. Branch) met 
in the Staditorium (subterranean 
auditorium) last evening, with lit- 
or no sense of loss. 

Professor Jannsen read his re- 
port on the artifacts found in the 
last visit to the top, and after giv- 
ing the customary benediction and 
proof that they were genuinely pre- 
W.W.III, he gave his analysis of 
their significance — an analysis 
which I feel will come to be known 
as the last word in Earth Arche- 

Round Building 

The objects themselves, found 
in a ruin of a round building 
which contained numerous tables 
and chairs (all fused beyond re- 
cognition, but nevertheless iden- 
tifiable by virue of their spectro- 
graphic analysis), seemed to be 
round objects themselves, leading 
the investigating scientists to be- 
lieve that the building might be a 
religious center devoted to a 
strange cult of Platonic circle- 

This was disproven, however, by 
the subsequent discovery of food- 
stuffs, in a remarkable state of 
preservation, on one of the sun 
terranean chambers of the build 
ing. Apparently, the round shape 
of the building was merely deco- 
rative, and of no paricuular sig- 
nificance. It was a food center, 
described in certain ancient man- 
uscripts as a dining hall, or army 
surplus store, as it was described 
in some of the more advanced re- 

Month of Study 

Through months of diligent 
study, Professor Jannsen finally 
concluded that the round objects 
were nothing less than remnants 
of what the old books called plates. 
The outstanding difficulty, said the 
professor, was the fact that the 
plates were horribly discolored, as 
from a chemical reaction with cer- 
tain vegetable poisons. He con- 
sidered laughable the suggestion 
that radiation might be responsi- 

The statement of the professor 
was short and to the point, repro- 
duced herein in full: 

"It seems obvious to me that all 
intelligent men must regard as 
fortunate this finding, which I 
am pleased and honoured was, to 
some small extent, a result of my 
research. (Applause here) The 
finding of the plates leads us to 
the inevitable conclusion that the 
fiasco of our ancestors — the war 
which drove them underground — 
the madness that almost destroyed 
the race — was nothing more than 
a dietary deficiency. 

"These plates show that to be 
true beyond the shadow of a doubt. 
How men could have lived as long 
as they did on such matter is be- 
yond my comprehension. The qual- 
ity of it was unbelievably bad, but 
masked for them, no doubt, b y 
clever seasoning with sauces and 
spices of potent flavor. If we but 
knew who might have plotted such 
a vile thing, we might pray for 
him, but as we do not, we must 
be content to take a lesson from 
the mistakes of our fathers and 
thanks that we have our concen- 
trated tablets." 

Professor Jannsen was greeted 
with wild applause as he sat. There 
being no other matteres on the im- 
mediate agenda, the meeting ad- 
journed to clean some of the east- 
ern passageways of debris before 
the rains came and everyone went 


Qiam. Ike 

by Robert Gentry 

James K. Lee isn't the only 
campus security chief who is hav- 
ing a parking problem. 

A survey of the college parking 
problem by the Goodyear Tire & 
Rubber Co. revealed that nearly 
2-million autos will work their way 
through college this year. 

The survey showed that 44 per 
cent of the nation's 4.5 million un- 
dergraduates reported to classes 
on wheels. 

The most succinct observation 
during the survey came from a 
manager of parking and traffic. At 
the bottom of his questionnaire he 
wrote, "Cars are still unnecessary 
to a college education." 

More on smoking. Since our last 
issue of the "Sauce" many folks on 
campus, including campus relig- 
ious leaders, have asked us: "If 
you are opposed to the use of to- 
bacco, why did you use the Marl- 
boro advertisement in the paper. 
Why aren't you consistent?" 

Actually it is our belief that all 
form of tobacco and tobacco ad- 
vertising should be banned from 
this campus. 

But, we reasoned this way: Why 
should we stop cigarette advertis- 



Last week, I promised political 
overtones in this column. Well, in 
this issue you will not find them, 
I am saving them for future num- 
bers, when I have racked my feeble 
journalism major mind, and cannot 
find anything humorous, or semi- 
humorous to write about. 

This week, as an opening topic, 
I have chosen the subject of movie 
cartoons. I have just become a 
member of the C.F.P.O.U.F.A.T.E. 
O.M.R.R.C.I.T.N.T. Although these 
initials seem to be long, and dif- 
ficult to remember, once you have 
realized their meaning, you will 
whole-heartedly join this move- 
ment, or at least back it to tke ut- 
most of your ability. 

They mean simply, "Congress 
For The Prevention Of Unfunny 
Funnies And The Encouragement 
Of More Road Runner Cartoons in 
the Natchitoches Theaters." Now 
aren't you all hipped up, and ready 
to sign on the dotted line, and be- 
come a member of this patriotic 

I really didn't think you would 
be, but it was worth a try. Serious- 
ly, don't you feel sorry for that 
poor coyote. He's so ingenious, but 
it's always to no avail. He reminds 
you somewhat of a college student 
trying to get through college, 
doesn't he? 

History Lesson 

Now that I have thoroughly ex- 
hausted that subject, I will go on 
to the weekly history lesson. This 
past Monday marks the 117th anni- 
versary of the founding of the 
planet Neptune. The third largest 
planet in the solar system, it takes 
164.79 earth years for it to go 
around the sun. Kinda makes you 
feel old to think that the Neptun- 
ians born on the day that Neptune 
was discovered, haven't celebrated 
their first birthday yet. 

So much for that. Customarily, I 
close the column with a bit of in- 
formation calculated to inform, but 
this time I will close with a quote. 
"We love a joke that hands us a 
pat on the back while it kicks the 
other fellow down the stairs." A 
fellow by the name of C. L. Edson 
brought that little jewel into the 


ing in the "Sauce" when cigarette 
vending machines can be found all 
over campus? 

A partial attempt at something 
is usually no good, or at least in 
this instance anyway. It's like a 
cancer— cutting part of it out does 
little good, all of it has to be re- 

Some "big" plans are in the mak- 
ing for the 250th anniversary cele- 
bration next year in Natchitoches- 
like a big ball at the new coliseum. 
Fact of the matter, Charles Cunn- 
ingham, of the "Times" manage- 
ment, is the general chairman of 
arrangement, and before he leaves 
for Europe latter part of this 
month, he will hold a round of 
conferences to make further plans 
for the observance. 

Notice the boo-boo that got by 
us last week? The head said the 
man is now a "Dean," while the 
story said (and correctly) that 
he's now a department head. 

We hear that a number of NSC 
students are planning to motor 
over to Alexandria to root for the 
Demons Saturday. Now that we've 
learned that the band is making 
the trip, too, we feel that's just 
another good reason for going! 

While bridge isn't played in our 
Student Center, we know some 
folks who like the game a great 
deal, and they're wondering if any 
of you students are interested 
enough to do a little playing? 
How's about letting us know? 

Two of the more interesting per- 
sonalities on campus these days 
are, Stina Hellberg from Finland, 
and Hans Altorfer from Switzer- 
land. They're graduate assistants 
in Health and Physical Education. 

Here at Northwestern we have 
a most commendable safety record. 
One of the reasons is our excellent 
campus security set-up. In this con- 
nection, rules and regulations have 
been designed to promote safety. 
So, when there's a sign, like one 
banning parking in front of a fire- 
plug, obey it. Remember, rules are 
there to be observed, and that they 
protect you, like everybody else. 

Know you all are planning to see 
three Northwestern plays this sea- 
son. Well, plan to see the first one 
in the Little Theater, as that's 
where Dr. West will stage "My 
Sister Eileen."

Northwestern To Meet Wildcats 
Saturday Night In Pineville 

by Pat McMeel 

Saturday night Northwestern 
State College and Louisiana Col- 
lege will collide in one of the old- 
est football rivalries in the state. 
The first meeting between these 
two clubs was in 1908. Since then, 
Northwestern has been able to win 
32 while losing only 11 and tying 

Both teams will be up for this 
game as the loser will walk away 
with a n 0-2 record. Two loses 
would equal that of the Demons' 
1962 record of 7-2-1. 

In last year's game, the two 
teams fought to a 7-7 deadlock with 
Kenny Thompson scoring the only 
T.D. for the Demons and Ed Hor- 
ton kicking the P.A.T. 

The Demons will have the tasks 
of stopping David Corley, the pile 
driving fullback for the Wildcats. 
Last year Croely was one of the 
leaders in net yards gained. 

The Demons will have Claude 
Patrick going for them in the full- 
back position. Last year he led the 
team in net yards with 416. He 
carried the ball 78 times for a 5.3 
yard average. 

Also going for the Demons will 
be Don Beasley at quarterback. 
Last year Don completed 22 of 52 
passes for 484 yards and eight 

touchdowns to lead the team in 
that department. 

Coach Jack Clayton announced 
that the starting lineup would be: 

Ends, Corwyn Aldredge (215) 
and Roy Gentry (200); Tackles, 
John Odom (270) and Charles Ra- 
gus (260); Guards, Allen Plummer 
(205) and Al Moreau (205); Cen- 
ter, Sammy Joe Odom (222); QB, 
Don Beasley (170); HB, Glenn Tal- 
bert (185) and Jerry Burton (180); 
and FB, Claude Patrick (200)

Jerry Ainsworth, who recently

hard already to get back in shape, 
and to look over the new varsity 

Under the watchful eye of Coach 
McPherson, the team is practicing 
daily Monday through Friday. Each 
practice session is concluded by a 
intersquad game pitting the North 
against the South at 3p.m. where 
the boys get a chance to show what 
they can do. 

There are many new faces this 
year who are trying hard to make 
the varsity, and Coach McPherson 
states that any man who wants to 
try out should come to the field 
now. Graduation has taken almost 
all last years outfielders, and these 
positions are up for grabs as well 
as several others. 

Back in the Demon flannels this 
year to name but a few are, Tommy 
Stewart, John Cress, Don Calvert, 
and All G.S.C. pitcher Charlie 
Johnson. Johnson, by the way, will 
be joined this year by his younger 
brother Gray, who had a fine sea- 
son last year with state AAA cham- 
pion Fair Park of Shrevesport. 
Another newcomer is Ronnie Ar- 
nold who was an All district se- 
lection at North Caddo of Shreves- 
port last year. 

The Demon squad will play a- 
round 30 or 35 games next season 
and should be up there in the fight 
for the G.S.C. flag. Last years 
young team finished the season 
with a 7-11 record.

Obesity Course 
Being Offered 

Under the direction of the Health 
and Physical Education Depart- 
ment of Northwestern State Col- 
lege, a new course has been estab- 
lished. This course, W49 is con- 
cerned with the study of obesity. 
It also includes exercising for body 
building and reduction. 

Mrs. Peggy Martin, who teaches 
the two sections of this course, 
said the participants are very en- 
thusiastic over it. Each day a five 
to 10 minute lecture is given on 
nutrition, dress, exercise and other 
related subjects. 

The classes are not limited only 
to the overweight but also include 
those who are underweight and 
those that have good figures and 
wish to keep them. 

Each member has a control part- 
ner on campus. It is someone who 
is about the same height, weight 
and measurements. This is done to 
check weight losses and improve- 
ment of the figure. 

Members of the class that are 
overweight are required to have a 
physical check-up and calorie plan 
from their physician. 

No credit is given in this class. 

erland, Altorfer taught school in 
Zurich for two years, and served 
as an instructor at the Swiss Fed- 
eral School of Gymnastics and 
Sport in Magglingen, Switzerland 
from 1961 to 1963. He was also 
coach of handball. 

Altorfer holds the rank of lieu 
tenant in the Swiss Army. With his 
wife, he is residing at 306 Williams 
Avenue, Natchitoches. She, too, is 
a native of Switzerland.

On Campus 


(By the Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!" and, 
"Barefoot Boy With Cheek.") 


Colleges are complicated and bewildering places, filled with 
complicated and bewildering people. Today let us examine 
one of the most complicated and bewildering— yet fetching and 
lovable— of all campus figures. I refer, of course, to the dear\ 
of students. 

Policeman and confessor, shepherd and seer, warden and 
oracle, proconsul and pal— the dean of students is all of these. 
How, then, can we understand him? Well sir, perhaps the best 
way is to take an average day in the life of an average dean. 
Here, for example, is what happened last Thursday to Dean 
Killjoy N. Damper of the Duluth College of Belles Lettres 
and Pemmican. 

At 6 a.m. he woke, dressed, lit a Marlboro, and went up on 
the roof of his house to remove the statue of the Fouader 
which had been placed there during the night by high- 
spirited undergraduates. 

At 7 a.m. he lit a Marlboro and walked briskly to the cam- 
pus. (The Dean had not been driving his car since it had been 
placed on the roof of the girls dormitory by high-spirited 

At 7:45 a.m. he arrived on campus, lit a Marlboro and 
climbed the bell tower to remove his secretary who had been 
placed there during the night by high-spirited undergraduates. 

At 8 a.m. he reached his office, lit a Marlboro, and met with 
E. Pluribus Ewbank, editor of the student newspaper. Young 
Ewbank had been writing a series of editorials urging the 
United States to annex Canada. When the editorials had 
evoked no response, he had taken matters into his own hands. 
Accompanied by his society editor and two proofreaders, he 
had gone over the border and conquered Manitoba. With great 
patience and several Marlboro Cigarettes, the Dean persuaded 
young Ewbank to give Manitoba back. Young Ewbank, how- 
ever, insisted on keeping Winnipeg. 

At 9 a.m. the Dean lit a Marlboro and met with Robert 
Penn Sigafoos, president of the local Sigma Chi chapter, who 
came to report that the Deke house had been put on top of 
the Sigma Chi house during the night by high-spirited under- 

At 10 a.m. the Dean lit a Marlboro and went to umpire 
an intramural Softball game on the roof of the law school 
where the campus baseball diamond had been placed during 
the night by high-spirited undergraduates. 

At 12 noon the Dean had a luncheon meeting with the 
prexy, the bursar, and the registrar, at the bottom of the cam- 
pus swimming pool where the faculty dining room had been 
placed during the night by high-spirited undergraduates. 
Marlboros were passed after luncheon, but not lighted, owing 
to dampness. 

At 2 p.m., back in his office, the Dean lit a Marlboro and 
received the Canadian Minister of War who said unless young 
Ewbank gave back Winnipeg, the Canadian army would march 
against the U.S. immediately. Young Ewbank was summoned 
and agreed to give back Winnipeg if he could have Moose Jaw. 
The Canadian Minister of War at first refused, but finally con- 
sented after young Ewbank placed him on the roof of t u - 
metallurgy building. 

At 3 p.m. the Dean lit a Marlboro and met with a delega- 
tion from the student council who came to present him with 
a set of matched luggage in honor of his fifty years' service as 
dean of students. The Dean promptly packed the luggage with 
all his clothing and fled to Utica, New York, where he is now 
in the aluminum siding game.

The makers of Marlboro, who sponsor this column, don'T 
claim that Marlboro is the dean of filter cigarettes — but it's 
sure at the head of the class. Settle back with a Marlboro 
and see what a lot you get to like!

Cecilia Shea 
Selected Queen 

Cecilia Shea was voted queen of 
the Northwestern State College 
State Fair Court for the second 
consecutive year in Tuesday's elec- 

Cecilia, a pretty blonde, burst 
into tears when her name was writ- 
ten under the word "queen" on the 
Student Center blackboard. She is 
a sophomore medical technology 
student who hails from Byrd High 
School in Shreveport. 

Maids in the court include Sherry 
Boucher of Springhill, freshman; 
Nancy Clayton of Natchitoches, 
sophomore; Linda Hansford of Doy- 
line, junior; Charlotte Hill of Bos- 
sier City, freshman; Wilma Hunt 
of Shreveport, junior; Chris New- 
some of Leesville, junior; Carolyn 
De Thomas of Shreveport, sopho- 
more; and Jeannie Marler of Alex- 
andria, junior. 

Escorts for the queen and her 
court will be members of the "N" 
club. The co-eds will ride in the 
traditional parade before the Tech- 
Northwestern football game in 
Shreveport, and they will be intro- 
duced, along with the queen and 
court from Tech, at the grudge

College Entrance 
Undergoing Change 

The main entrance to North- 
western is undergoing change, as 
can be noted by the workmen at 
the scene. 

The beautif ication committee, 
composed of various faculty mem- 
bers, says that after completion of 
the work now in progress, the re- 
cently iron-grilled structure with 
the name "Northwestern" on it will 
be enlarged and set back farther 
from College Avenue than pre- 

New landscaping will soon be 
underway and the gates which 
once completed the entrance will 
be restored. The whole project 
should add beauty to the campus. 

Deadline for completion of the 
work has not yet been set. 

Committee Named 
For Celebration 

President John S. Kyser has 
named 13 faculty members to serve 
on the Northwestern State College

Eversull, Dudley Fulton, Col Lee 
James, Frank Magers, Sylvan Nel- 
ken, Guy Nesom, Dr. Yvonne Phil- 
lips, Dr. Walter Robinson, Dr. Eu- 
gene Watson, and Dr. Edna West. 

Charles Cunningham, publisher

Council Proposes 
Fee For Center 

The Northwestern Student Coun- 
c 'l has proposed that a small stu- 
dent center fee be added to regis- 
tration costs for financing a new 
center for Northwestern students. 

At its meeting Monday, the coun- 
cil suggested that the center have 
six lounges, 10 conference rooms, 
a snack bar which would be the 
s 'ze of our present ballroom, a 
beauty shop and barber shop, a 
game room as large as our present 
student center and an auditorium. 

Other business handled at the 
•Meeting included acceptance of a 
contract with the "Rhythm Dukes" 
to provide music at the Saturday 
n 'ght dance following the North- 
east-NSC game. 

Final plans were also made for 
P r e-game activities to be held in 
Shreveport before the Tech-North- 
w estern classic on Oct. 19.

Hiram Gregory, instructor of 
geography and social studies, has 
been named curator of the William- 
son Museum at Northwestern State 
College, replacing Dr. George 
Stokes, newly appointed dean of 
the school of Arts and Sciences. 

Gregory has announced that the 
museum will be open from 8 a.m. 
to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday 
and from 8 a.m. to 12 noon on Sat- 

The museum contains one of the 
largest collections of stone points 
and tools in the state. These pieces 
range form about 300 to 10,000 
years in existence. The collection 
of artifacts is being used by other 
Louisiana and Texas colleges as 
well for study purposes. 

An exhibit on early colonial ma- 
terial and early Indian material 
from this state is now being shown, 
according to Gregory. 

The instructor has been teaching 
at Northwestern for three years. 
He received his B.A. and M.A. from 
Louisiana State University and is 
currently working on his doctorate 
at LSU.

"Sauce" Refuses To Use Material 
Which Tends To Advocate Integration 

The "Current Sauce" took three important steps this 
week: (1) It dropped its membership to the Collegiate Press 
Service, an agency of the United States Student Press Associa- 
tion, (2) it refused to insert copies of the October "Collegiate 
Digest" with the "Sauce," and (3) it refused to use an Air Force 
advertisement from the National Advertising Service. 

Now the reasons. 

The second bulletin of the Collegiate Press Service (we 
didn't see the first one) contained a complete summary and in- 
terpretive analysis of the 16th National Student Congress of the 
United States Student Press Association. 

Contained in the bulletin was a story concerning the National 
Student Congress' "overwhelming" endorsement of the march 
on Washington for Jobs and freedom. 

The resolution story said that the United States National 
Student Association "strongly supports this effort (the march) 
to bring to public attention the related problems of discrimi- 
nation and economic deprivation." 

Also in the five page bulletin were two other articles 
which leaned toward integration. And they expected us to use 
it all, and there will probably be more of the same propaganda 
to come.. We had rather see our $30 annual dues applied to the 
salary of the janitor over here in Bullard Hall than to go to 
this organization. 

We refused to use the "Collegiate Digest" because it con- 
tained pictures of Negroes beside those of white persons. One 
particular picture told the "amazing" story of how a Negro 
janitor in Detroit rose from his old position to that of a teacher. 

The advertisement from the National Advertising Service 
showed a picture of a Negro with whites on his left and right. 

In the 49 year history of the "Sauce," it has been an un- 
written policy never to print any material or circulate any pro- 
paganda advocating integration. Northwestern is a college 
steeped in the traditions of the Old South. Any material ad- 
vocating or depicting integration in any manner will not be 

It's time that we stand up for the institutions we hold so 
dear to our hearts. They are the same institutions for which 
our forefathers gave their lives. And if we win, we win a vic- 
tory for all the people and not just a handfull. And if we lose, 
we lose knowing that we have fought for what we think is 
right. God grant that our freedom to fight is never taken away. 

Page 3 

Problem With The Security 

Numerous complaints against the workings of the Campus 
Security have come to the "Sauce" office lately, and many 
center around the problem of congestion in Lots 1 and 5. 

In Lot 1, students who arrive on campus too late to get 
a place for their car in the official zone are given tickets for 
parking along the side and in crossing zones for students. 

Perhaps the number of cars can not be reduced or the 
amount of parking area increased, but we are sure the number 
of tickets on the cars of students and staff members could be 
cut down significantly. 

It seems that ticket writing is a favorite activity of campus 
Policemen. Students are instructed to park along the side of 
Lot 1 if the lot itself is full- but receive tickets if they do. And, 
oven if the side is full, cars parked as near the zone as possible 
are adorned with yellow slips. 

Instructions are ambiguous. 

In Lot 5 the situation is less critical, but still exasperating 
to students who drop by the post office to pick up mail. If the 
10-minute parking space is full and students park elsewhere 
w the lot for several minutes, they are greeted with tickets 
upon return to their cars. 

Leniency can be requested, but often to no avail. 

If students who commute do their best to follow regula- 
tions, perhaps they deserve some consideration. We ask for 
more kindness and less ticket writing for Northwestern faculty, 
students, and staff. 



JtjT ~ 

Last week, I received some criti- 
cism on my column's subject and I 
understand that another group has 
been formed — the C.F.T.P.O.U.J.W. 

This simply is the "Congress For 
The Prevention Of Unfunny Jest 
Wandering Columns and The En- 
couragement Of More By Lines For 
Henry Joyner." 

You see, the review of the hoot- 
enanny which was our lead story 
last week was by Henry Joyner, 
and by mistake, it got no by-line. 
Our apologies, and I will not join 
the organization. 

I was visiting a cousin of mine 
this past week-end, and I found 
that Centenary dogs still get to 
have their heads shaved. 

Although I'm not a fanatic on the 
subject, I would like to put in my 
two pesos worth. 

The administration says that the 
main reason that this tradition was 
stopped was because only a small 
proportion of upperclassmen were 
participating. There is a good 
reason for this. 

Previously, all shaving had been 
done on the Sunday that Freshmen 
arrive, three days before upper- 
classmen are required to be here. 
Thus, only town students, monitors, 
and a few students who live nearby 
can join in. 

Of course, you might say that 
the freshmen beanie takes care of 
the problem of recognizing frosh, 
and it would, if they wore them. 

The loss of a few locks will not 
hurt anyone, but the loss of a tra- 
dition harms the spirit of the in- 
stitution. At any rate, the greasy- 
kid's stuff soaked mess that is 
worn by some dogs, looks as if it 
came directly from High School 

Speaking of hair, did you know 
that the average blonde has 150,000 
hairs on her head? 


A Statement 
On Men 

I hate men. Men are lazy, nasty- 
minded mouchers. They'll let their 
date break herself and end the 
evening with an empty wallet. 

Men like to come in, sit down, 
and "request" such things as ice 
cream, newspapers, slippers, has- 
sock, complete quiet when the 
children have worn the women nuts 
all day, someone to come from 
hanging out clothes to adjust the 
television, and a little smooching 
from the dreary housewife. 

Men run everything, everybody's 
lives. Men drag women to ball- 
games when the latest movie they 
saw was Greta Garbo's last silent 
drama. Men take their "lovers" 
places and forget that they ever 
loved. Men enjoy other men's com- 
pany best; women are needed to 
lean on if no bosom buddy is 
around. But most men find bosom 
buddies anywhere — even those of 
the other sex when "necessary." 

Men can let their women buy 
their underwear, suits, socks, and 
shoes. Men don't mind if their wo- 
men go bare. 

Men can brag of great conquer- 
ings of other women and never 
flinch if the latest flame hears. 
Anyway, she should feel lucky to 
capture such an animalistic human. 

Men can't think to pick up a 
single flower for their slaves be- 
fore returning home. 

Men are hateful and I hate 'em.

More coeds needed at Wednes- 
day night dance, some say. One re- 
port has it that numerically there 
were five boys to every girl at the 
dance Wednesday night. 

The fine story in last week's 
"Sauce" about the hootenanny was 
written by Henry Joyner. We failed 
to give his work a by-line. 

From where we sit it looks like 
the boys were out for a good time 
last week-end. One staffer had his 
gal at a Monroe night club; another 
wound up at a college in East 
Texas (don't think he really knows 
how he got there), another "cele- 
brated at his home community"

Natchitoches, La. 
Dear Robert, 

Let me take this opportunity to 
wish you the best of luck in all 
that you do during the coming 
year as you attempt to serve your 
school in the very important field 
of student publications. This wish 
comes not only from me but from 
the entire executive council of the 
Southern Universities Student 
Government Association.

mainly what counts. So, Ye Ed, is 
hoping that somebody will do 
something this week to work up 
student (and player) enthusiasm 
before that Northeast game here. 

Other day we overheard a male 
student at Demonville say some- 
thing had happened "as often as 
they run an armed forces program 
on the local radio station." 

It just occurred to us that Andy 
Pontz oversleeping might be 
blamed on a recalcitrant alarm 
clock (that's what we always blame 
when we oversleep). 

Just in case you noticed lots of 
smiles on the faces of the older 
folks on campus (faculty and staf- 
fers) Monday, blame it on the fact 
that the "ghost had walked" for 
them that morning. 

We're shooting at a goal of 100 
news items (stories) in every issue 
of the Sauce. In case you didn't 
count 'em, we had 48 in the first 
issue, and 61 last week. You can 
help, of course. Tell us about any 
bit of news or, better still, write 
it up and bring it to our office, 
Room 21 in Bullard. 

Just wanted one and all to know 
that we DO NOT THINK we're a 
man of immense magnitudes and 
great ponderosities, just because 
we're the editor. AND, that's not 
why we smoke a cigar occasionally 
— we happen to like 'em. 

Then, there is the direct quote 
from a letter received by the Wel- 
fare Office to the effect that, "This 
is my eighth child. What are you 
going to do about it?" 

College work crews have leveled 
the ground around Louisiana Hall 
and have planted grass, which is 
now beautifully coming up. In the 
area between Louisiana Hall and 
Bienville Hall, the male residents 
of Bienville planted turnip seeds 
and a beautiful turnip patch is 
coming up. Students may be eating 
these turnips in Bienville Dining 
Hall in a few weeks if there is a 
good crop.

Northwestern^ Demons Suffer 13-7 
Defeat By Louisiana College Cats 

By Rick Woodson, 
Sauce Sports Writer 

Northwestern State College suf 
fered its second defeat of the sea- 
son without a win Saturday as the 
Wildcats from Louisiana College 
capitalized on a fumbled punt in 
the fourth quarter and turned back 
the Demons 13-7. 

LC scored the winning touch- 
down on a 36 yard drive after Tom- 
my Wyatt bobled a punt and Ed 
Hanna recovered for the Wildcats. 
Halfback Stan Douglas climaxed 
the march with a nice 19 yard jaunt 
with David Corley missing the point 

In the first period NSC's Wayne 
Walker boomed a 48 yard punt 
down to the Cat 27 where quarter- 
back Phil Troutman hauled in the 
kick and went 73 yards for the 
game's opening TD. Corley's kick 
was good. 

Demons Trail 

After one quarter Northwestern 
trailed 7-0, but knotted the count 
when big Al Anding pounced on a 
Wildcat fumble at the home team's 
30. With Jerry Burton and Claude 
Patrick providing the yardage, the 
Demons tallied their first touch- 
down of the season when Patrick 

bolted in from the one. Horton's 
kick was good. 

The Demons threatened near the 
end of the third period, marching 
from their own 27 down to the LC 
three, but the Wildcat defense got 
stingy at that point and stopped 
the Demon bid. It was Burton and 
Patrick providing most of the yard- 
age on that drive. Natchitoches' 
Horton was preparing for a field 
goal attempt from the 10 when a 
fumble forced him to run and he 
was stopped at the three. 

The Demons were hurt by a five 
yard penalty in the Wildcats win- 
ning drive, after which Douglas 
scored the TD with 7:22 left in the 
contest. NSC had time to score 
after that, but were unable to, and 
the game ended 13-7. 


Statistic-wise, the Demons held 
the edge over the Wildcats. NSC 
rolled up 18 first downs to only 
eight for LC, while rushing for 190 
yards and passing for 58 more on 
six of 10 throws completed. The 
Wildcats also completed six of 10 
aerials, for 38 yards. 

The Cats leading rusher was Cor- 
ley while Burton paced NSC with 
77 yards on 12 tries. Patrick chimed 
in with 70 yards on 15 jaunts and

Demons To Meet 
Northeast Here 
Saturday Night 

by Jerry Brill, 
Sauce Sports Writer 

Northwestern State Demons, 
losers of their first two games, play 
host to the Northeast Louisiana 
State College Indians Saturday 
night. The Indians, under the 
coaching of Jack C. Rowan, have 
posted a 1-1 season thus far. They 
dropped their first game 9-0 to 
Chattanooga and came back on the 
final play of their second game to 
overcome McMurry 8-7. 

In past games, the Demons have 
been victors in nine games while 
loosing only two. Last year the 
Demons came out on top by a score 
of 18-17. Going into the final mom- 
ents the Demons trailed 17-12. 

An 86 yard jaunt by Steve Mur- 
phy and a five yard blast by Claude 
Patrick kept the Demons within 
striking distance. Quarterback Don 
Beasley took over and hit end Jack- 
ie Smith with the game's winning 

Jack Clayton said this week that 
Northeast has a lot of boys back 
from last year and should be a 
stronger team. Last year they lost 
three conference games by only 
three points. The Indians came in 
last in the Gulf States Conference. 

The Demons will be relying heav- 
ily on halfback Jerry Burton. The 
NSC squad will also be depending 
on center Sammy Joe Odom. Odom 
was an All-GSC and All-NAIA play- 
er in 1962. He has shown both fine 
offensive and defensive talents in 
the Demon's first two games. 

playing on better than 80 per cent 
of the total number of plays. 

Also given recognition were the 
top offensive and defensive line- 
men. They were Sammy Joe Odom, 
Johnny Ray Norman, and Roy Gen- 
try. Odom was named one of the 
top linemen in both catagories. 

Three players, Allen Plummer, 
Al Anding and Glen Talbert were 
recipients of the star awards for 
this week. Plummer and Anding 
were given the reward for their 
recovery of fumbles and Talbert 
was given the award for his inter- 
ception of a pass.

201 East Third at Keyser 

On Campus 


(By the Aulhor of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!" and, 
"Barefoot Boy With Cheek.") 


Today let us take up the subject of etymology (or entomology, 
as it is sometimes called) which is the study of word origins 
(or insects, as they are sometimes called). 

Where are word origins (insects) to be found? Well sir, some- 
times words are proper names which have passed into the 
language. Take, for instance, the words used in electricity: 
ampere was named after its discoverer, the Frenchman Andre 
Marie Ampere (1775-1836); similarly, ohm was named after 
the German G.S. Ohm (1781-1854), watt after the Scot James 
Watt (1736-1819), and bulb after the American Fred C. Bulb 

There is, incidentally, quite a poignant little story about 
Mr. Bulb. Until Bulb's invention, all illumination was pro- 
vided by gas, which was named after its inventor Milton T. Gas 

who, strange to tell, had been Bulb's roommate at Cal Tech! 
In fact, strange to tell, the third man sharing the room with 
Bulb and Gas was also one whose name burns bright in **"• 
annals of illumination— Walter Candle ! 

The three roommates were inseparable companions in col- 
lege. After graduation all three did research in the problems 
of artificial light, which at this time did not exist. All America 
used to go to bed with the chickens, and many fine citizens were, 
alas, severely injured falling off the roost. 

Well sir, the three comrades— Bulb, Gas, and Candle- 
promised to be friends forever when they left school, but 
success, alas, spoiled all that. First Candle invented the can- 
dle, got rich, and forgot his old friends. Then Gas invented gas, 
got rich, bankrupted Candle, and forgot his old friends. Then 
Bulb invented the bulb, got rich, bankrupted Gas, and forgot 
his old friends. 

Candle and Gas, bitter and impoverished at the ages respec- 
tively of 75 and 71, went to sea as respectively the world's 
oldest and second oldest cabin boy. Bulb, rich and grand, also 
went to sea, but he went in style— as a first-class passenger on 
luxury liners. 

Well sir, strange to tell, all three were aboard the ill-fated 
Lusitania when she was sunk in the North Atlantic. And 
strange to tell, when they were swimming for their lives after 
the shipwreck, all three clambered aboard the same dingh> ! 

Well sir, chastened and made wiser by their brush with peril, 
they fell into each other's arms and wept and exchanged for- 
giveness and became fast friends all over again. 

For three years they drifted in the dinghy, shaking hands 
and singing the Cal Tech rouser all the while. Then, at long 
last, they spied a passing liner and were taken aboard. 

They remained fast friends for the rest of their days, which, 
I regret to report, were not many, because the liner which picked 
them up was the Titanic. 

What a pity that Marlboros were not invented during the 
lifetimes of Bulb, Gas, and Candle. Had there been Marlboros, 
these three friends never would have grown apart because they 
would have realized how much, despite their differences, they 
still had in common. I mean to say that Marlboros can be lit by 
candle, by gas, and by electricity, and no matter how you 
light them, you always get a lot to like— a filter, a flavor, a 
pack or box that makes anyone— including Bulb, Gas, and Can- 
dle—settle back and forswear pettiness and smile the sweet 
smile of friendship on all who pass !

Speir, Sanders 
To Get FFA Award 

Jackie R. Speir and Dana San- 
ders, Northwestern State College 
freshmen will receive the nation's 
highest award for a member of the 
Future Farmers of America. They 
will be awarded the Future Farmer 
Degree at the National FFA con- 
vention in Kansas City, Mo., Thurs-

an engraved certificate, all of which 
will be awarded in a special ses- 
sion of the house of delegates by 
national FFA officers and officials 
of the U.S. Office of Education. 

Speir won the award on his farm 
by centering his major around for- 
estry, beef cattle, forage and other 
feed and truck crops, while San- 
ders focused his attention on the 
commercial operation of a minnow 
farm along with forestry, beef cat- 
tle, orchard and swine enterprises.

Freshman Killed Monday In Grinding 
Car-Truck Collision North Of Here 

Carolyn Faye Toups 

A Northwestern State College 
freshman was fatally injured in a 
grinding car-truck collision Mon- 
day morning about two miles north 
of Natchitoches on State High- 
way 1. , 

Dead is 18-year-old Carolyn Faye 
Toups, secretarial science major 
from Shreveport. She was the 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Dallas 
J. Toups. 

Miss Toups' brother, Jerry, 25, 
was taken to Natchitoches Parish 
Hospital in serious condition. Mon- 
day afternoon he was transferred 
to Barksdale Air Force Base. 

Toups, who is stationed with the 
Air Force in Houston, Tex., was 

driving his sister back to North- 
western before returning to Hous- 

Out Of Control 

State Trooper Robert Arthur 
said the vehicle's right wheels 
dropped off the pavement and the 
vehicle apparently veered out of 
control. The car traveled 121 feet 
on the shoulder before entering 
the highway again. 

The vehicle then traveled 33 feet 
at an angle on the highway before 
hitting a truck and trailer driven 
by Arnold Perle of Tulsa, Okla. 
The truck and trailer, owned by 
Grever Trucking Co. of Tulsa, re- 
ceived $6,000 damage. 

Trooper Robert Arthur Inspects Wrecked Car. 

President Speaks 
At Lions Meeting 

Dr. John Kyser, Northwestern 
State College President, was guest 
speaker Monday at the noon meet- 
ing of the Natchitoches Lions' 
Club held in Broadmoor Restau- 
rant. His speech was a report of 
the European tour which he and 
Mrs. Kyser made this summer. 

During his talk President Kyser 
mentioned the industrial recovery I 
of West Germany which was il- 
lustrated by the Volkswagen auto- 
motive plant which he visited. This 
plant has grown from virtual ruins 
at the end of World War II to the 
number three automotive producer 
second only to U.S. giants, Gen- 
eral Motors and Ford. He said that 
the best techniques of U.S. mass 
production had been incorporated 
into the mile-long assembly lines. 

Other topics discussed by the 
speaker were the Common Market, 
Franco-German relations, and the 
expansion of Russia and commun- 
ism into western Europe as a re- 
sult of World War II. He predicted 
the eventual reunion of West and 
East Germany, probably not in this 
generation, however. 

Throughout his talk Dr. Kyser 
stressed the value of travel as a 
method of gaining firsthand infor- 
mation and insight into world pro-

Friday Night Dances To Start Tonight 

by Diana Taylor 

Don't be a suitcase Sally or Sam! 

There's a new excuse to stay 
on campus Friday nights. And 
that's the weekly informal Friday 
night dance to be initiated in the 
dance studio of the Women's Gym 
from 8-10:30 tonight. 

The weekly affair is being pro- 
moted by members of the Contem- 
porary Dance Club, under the fac- 
ulty sponsorship of Dr. Coleen 
Nelken, associate professor of 
health and physical education. 

Everyone Invited 

"All students are invited and 
there is no charge," stated Dr. 
Nelken. "The dances will be held 
throughout the year from 8-10:30 
P m. except when in conflict with 
all-college events. Everyone is 
ur ged to put Friday night dances 
on their recreation calendars. 
Come and join the fun." 

Decorations and special dance 

Alpha Phi Gamma 
Schedules Meet 

Alpha Phi Gamma, national hon- 
orary journalism fraternity, will 
hold its first meeting of the fall 
semester Monday in room 108 of 
the Russell Library. All members 
ar e urged to attend. 

Officers this year include Karen 
jwgedorn, secretary; Ronald Cor- 
le y, treasurer; Sonny Carter, vice- 
President; and Wayne Summers, 

themes will be worked up during 
the year. Dr. Nelken has said that 
a special costume affair may be 
planned for the Halloween Dance 
and on other special occasions. 

Records will be provided by the 
Contemporary Dancers. The phon- 
ograph in the Women's Gym will 
be used 

Other than scheduled athletic 
events which fall on Friday, the 
only conflicting night this semes- 
ter on which a campus event is 
scheduled is Dec. 6, date of an NSC 
Theatre production. No dance will 
be held on this Friday sight. 

"March 20 is the date set for 
the Military Ball," said Dr. Nelken, 
"but the dance will be held this 
night because the ball is not an 
all-College event. 


Other conflicting Friday nights 
during the spring semester include 
April 24, first night of the annual 
drama festival on campus; May 1, 
scheduled night for a fraternity 
dance; May 8, date of the Natchi- 
toches 250th anniversary ball; and 
May 15, which falls during special 
study week. The weekly dance will 
be held on May 1 for those not 
attending the fraternity event. 

The much-talked-about Saturday 
night Hootenanny may be installed 
for weekend entertainment Fri- 
day nights now have events sched- 
uled throughout the year. 

If you've been looking for rea- 
sons to stay on campus, why not 
use this one? And have fun. 

Basil Rathbone 

Celebrity Slated

actor of radio, television, and mo- 
tion pictures will appear on stage

Demonettes Will Take On New Look 

by Diane Taylor 

The Demonettes, Northwestern 
State College dance group which 
performs during parades, on road 
trips with the gymnastic team and 
during football game half-time 
shows, are to be a new thing this 

Dr. Coleen Nelken, associate pro- 
fessor of health and physical edu- 
cation, is sponsor of the group. The 
all-girl organization is directed by 
Mrs. Peggy (Watson) Martin, grad- 
uate student, who is assisted by 
Gladys Kilman, senior dance ma- 

"We're hoping that by doing a 
good job this term, we will en- 
courage a larger membership next 
fall," said Mrs. Martin. 


Complete Change 

The dance group was so com- 
pletely changed this year, she said, 
that completely new uniforms and 
routines were required. Uniforms 
have been ordered and the associa- 
tion is still awaiting them. 

"We will use different costumes 
for each football game according 
to the particular theme of the 
game," Mrs. Martin said. "We have 
received the pom poms we ordered 
and routines will be worked up, 
with the band and with the cheer- 
leaders, for the girls to perform in 
the stands." 

The Demonettes will wear sur- 
prise costumes for the NSC-Tech 
football game performance. Indian 
costumes of unique design will be 

worn for the homecoming half- 
time ceremony. 

The girls will do line dance rou- 
tines while traveling with the gym 
team to Springhill, Shreveport, 
Alexandria, Tioga and LeCompte. 
They will also present numbers 
during the gymnastic team's home 

Performing at all school pep 
rallies, the group will be present 
during the State Fair game pep 
rally in Shreveport and will march 
in the annual Parade of Schools 
prior to the gridiron classic. 

Red and white costumes have 
been ordered for the Natchitoches 
Christmas Festival parade and pa- 

Stands captain will be Jane Jef- 
fress and field captain will be Pa- 
tricia Armstrong. 

One hour of credit is given for 
this activity course.

| A Day of Terror 

As I walk the earth I shudder 
in the grips of fear. All I view is 
sinister and displays an atmos- 
phere of gloom. There is joy and 
laughter all about me but I feel 
none Terror is my only emotion. 

When I look in the face of a man 
all I feel is cold contempt. Where 
is the world I once knew? Where 
are the friends I once had? The 
world does not exist. My friends 
are gone. I am alone. 


Tomorrow will decide my fate 
as it does the condemned criminal 
on death row. Only his fate is cer- 
tain, mine is not. If only I could 
trade places with him! But surely 
he would refuse. At least he is 
certain. His every wish is granted 

As I lay in my bed I cannot 
sleep The four walls close upon 
me. I feel evil uncertainty from all 
points of ■ the compass. The lamp 
burns but it is still dark. I cannot 
see. My eyes do not function. I 
ruffle my pillow time and again. 
It is nothing but a headsman's 
block. The dripping perspiration 
is my blood. 

As the early rays of the morn- 
ing sun pierce my window my room 
becomes the valley of the shadow 
of death I step out into the morn- 
ing of a new day, my judgement 
day. The time has come. 

Across The Hills 

As I journey across the hills all 
I see are the sinister shadows of 
the pines. My legs are butter. My 
heart is a smith's hammer and my 
lungs his bellows. The people I 
meet view me with cold indiffer- 
ence. Surely they conceive the 
terror that is mine. But they do 

At last I reach my destination. 
I want to die. Death would be 
sweet, but it does not come. I 
finally breathe deeply and go in- 
side mustering all the courage I 
possess. There is now no turning 
back. I must be brave, for today is 
registration and I am a freshman 
of Northwestern State College.

Current Sauce 
Dear Sir: 

The traditions of the Old South 
have a depth and intensity which 
can capture even the wayward 
heart. To seek to change one of 
those traditions is enough to drive 
questions into one's own heart. 

I was astonished to see how light- 
ly you regard a wealth of history. 
Your radical irreverence for our 
past breaches our contract with 
those who have worked truth into 
our heritage and into our custom- 
ary ways. 

In your editorial of last Friday, 
October 4, I read the following: 
"In the 49 year history of the 
"Sauce," it has been an unwritten 
policy never to print any material 
or circulate any propaganda advo- 
cating integration." Uprooting as 
this assertation clearly is, you make 
my heart sick. Why have you brok- 
en faith with the past? Unwritten 
policy for 49 years, and yet you 
clearly violate that policy by mak- 
ing it over into written policy. 
That is, your editorial itself con- 
stitutes a most flagrant, most radi- 
cal, most uprooting act in scatter- 
ing a tradition that had lasted 
almost half a century. 

I assume you have examined 
yourself as you take this unprece- 
dented step. If a liberal is one who 
cares not a whit for the past, and 
who tailors his policies to fit any 
passing whim, then I wonder why 
we should have such a brand of 
unthinking liberalism set up as the 
editorial policy of our college 

As one whose conservatism val- 
ues half a century's worth of tra- 
dition, I charge you with derelic- 
tion of your duties to the Old South. 
You have spoken explicitly where 
the past remained mute; I charge 
you with irresponsibility in both 
word and deed. You care not a whit 
for the past; I charge you with 
unthinking liberalism, a specious 
wind of doctrine that would blow 
over what we hold dear. 
Conservatively yours 
Bertrand P. Helm 
Instructor in Social Sciences 


Mr. Robert Gentry 
Editor, NSC Current Sauce 
Natchitoches. Louisiana 
Dear Editor, 

I was shocked to see the most 
flagrant display of narrow-minded- 
ness and immaturity on the part of 
the person who wrote last week's 

editorial entitled "Sauce Refuse To 
Use Material Which Tends To Ad- 
vocate Integration." In this editor- 
ial you, or whoever wrote the edi- 
torial, stated that information ad- 
vocating integration would not be 
published in the "Current Sauce." 
The action you took does not strike 
out at integration, it strikes at the 
basic principles of American free- 
dom, the freedom of speech and 
freedom of the press. We as Ameri- 
cans cannot fight a battle when 
we remain un-informed. The battle 
against integration should not be 
waged in ignorance and darkness; 
the darkness of the un-informed 
American. What the "Current 
Sauce" has done in effect is this: 
Removed a source of information 
which tends to enlighten readers 
on the integration question, and 
followed a policy which under- 
minds the very principles of our 
educational system, the search for 

Distirbingly yours, (sic.)

Dear Editor, 

The showers in Brick Shack have 
gotten to be a place of chilled 
spines and cast a feeling of out- 
doors. The showers are air condi- 
tioned year round. 

As long as you stay under the 
shower in hot water, you're in good 
shape. But as soon as you step out, 
it's really "bad news." 

For an example. One boy missed 
four classes because he was afraid 
to step out from the hot water and 
meet the air conditioned, shower 
room. And this was not during the 
snow either! We like our dorm, but 
the cold shower we're not so fond

Dear Editor: 

Having attended the Wednesday 
night dances for almost three se- 
mesters now I am astonished at 
the fact that the same records are 
still on the jukebox. Some of my 
senior friends say that they have 
been there since they were fresh- 
men! Is this part of the tradition 
of Northwestern — to bore the stu-

Concert Hour In 
Fifth Year Now 

The Concert Hour, a program of 
recorded classical music, will be 
on the air for its fifth consecutive, 
year this year, according to Dr. 
Joseph B. Carlucci, head of the 
music department. The program 
made its debut for this season Sun- 

Dr. Carlucci will again serve as 
commentator for the broadcast 
which is presented through the fa- 
cilities of KNOC radio. 

about two hours out ot every week 
there will be a time to forget about 
the eternal grind of school. 

I think we the student body 
could make these Wednesday night 
dances a part of each week to be 
proud of. We would no longer be 
ashamed to ask visitors (even from 
Tech) to take part in our only 
social event of the week. 

I propose that we do one of the 

1. Charge a small admission un- 
til we get a new variety of records, 
perhaps even a new jukebox. 

2. Put wheels on the jukebox in 
the cafeteria and roll it in the stu- 
dent center on Wednesday nights. 

3. Let students donate records 
of their own to the exhausted sup- 
uply that has already been played 
for about 100 years.

Dear Mr. Gentry, 

After reading the article in last 
Friday's "Current Sauce," concern- 
ing "men", and listening to the 
comments of both men and women 
students on campus, I have decided 
that the article did not express 
universal sentiment. 

Enclosed please find my two 
brownie points and humble opinion 
on the subject at hand. 

Sincerely yours, 
Eustasia Vye 
• * * 

Some women profess to hate 'em. 
Why how silly. How can you hate 
a man when men mean the world 
to almost every woman? We eat, 
breathe and sleep men. And why, 
because we love 'em. 

Sometimes they are inconsider- 
ate, but afterwards you appreciate 
their thoughtfulness twice as much. 
Don't you? A tender kiss and a 
sweet smile mean more to most 
women than an orchid and an even- 
ing of wining, dining and dancing. 

But on the other hand, men can 
be fickle, if you give them half a 
chance to be. They will cheat, trick 
and take anything they can get. 
And isn't it a shame that we let 
them get away with it. 

So face the facts gals, men are 
what we let them be. Maybe we ex- 
pect too much from our men, but 
remember, they are only human, 
like us! 




Celebration Committee Appointed 

We were glad to see President Kyser appoint 13 faculty 
members to serve on a committee for the celebration of the 
250th anniversary of the founding of Natchitoches. The big 
celebration is set for next May 8 and 9. 

We think Dr. Kyser was wise in appointing Orville Han- 
chey to head this unit. We know of his past works and feel 
that he will serve his new position in top quality. 

The other 12 members of the committee are among the 
most knowledgeable this campus can produce. They are Miss 
Katherine Bridges, Dr. Joseph Carlucci, Dr. LeRoi Eversull, 
Dudley Fulton, Col. Lee James, Frank Magers, Sylvan Nelken, 
Dr. Guy Nesom, Dr. Yvonne Phillips, Dr. Walter Robinson, 
Dr. Eugene Watson and Dr. Edna West. 

Another step forward, we are glad to see, is the beautifi- 
cation of the main entrance to the college. In addition to re- 
placing the iron grilled structure bearing the word "North- 
western," the area will be landscaped. This will be ready to 
welcome visitors to the college during the festivities. 

Among the events planned are parades, exhibits and dis- 
plays, and an Old South ball. 

General Chairman Charles Cunningham tells us that this 
celebration will get extensive nationwide publicity and some 
international publicity. It is also a good time to publicize 
Northwestern. We are glad the administration saw fit to assist 
in the celebration. 

Another Appeal 

In last year's "Sauce" appeared an appeal to our campus 
telephone operators to be a bit more courteous to persons who 
call in to our college. 

We realize, regretfully, that this had no effect on the 
operators who greet callers, for complaints continue. 

Our operators are indirectly public relations officials for 
Northwestern, and when persons are answered in snappy tones 
and with curt remarks, the reputation of the institution as a 
whole is often at stake. 

If this were realized by the ladies over in Varnado who 
accomodate callers, possibly they would be more thoughtful 
of their actions and would value their positions more highly. 

We appeal again.

Out Of Order 

Last year, as a Student Council project, a stamp machine 
was placed in the field house to serve Northwestern State 
College students. 

Since that time, the stamp machine has been out of work- 
ing order more than it has been selling stamps. The project 
was one which received the praise of everyone at its initiation, 
but now students wonder what purpose the device serves — it 
produces no stamps when the knob is turned. 

Maybe the Student Council could make it a project, again 
for the benefit of those they serve, to keep the machine in 
working order. 

Everyone needs to write home every now and then. 



"The Many Loves of Dobie Gil- 
lis" by Max Shulman contains 11 
short stories in which Dobie Gillis 
relates incidents in his college life. 
College life as experienced by Do- 
bie Gillis is really a course in girls. 
In fact, Gillis frankly admits his 
major interest in college to be the 
pursuit of women as part of a 
much larger plan, the pursuit of 

With this goal in mind, Dobie 
goes off to college to major in 
girls. As a result of this constant 
pursuit of the fair sex, Dobie is 
referred to as the campus casanova 
with a crew cut. 

Max Shulman has been solidly 
established as one of America's 
favorite humorists. This book is 
further proof that he desreves this 
recognition. Shulman presents a 
hilarious characterization of Dobie. 
The reader will have to hold his 
sides from laughter. I would re- 
commend, "The Many Loves of 
Dobie Gillis," for persons who 
want something light and humor-

Student Council 

October 7, 1963 

President Sonny Hargrove called 
the meeting to order. After wel- 
coming President Kyser, Hargrove 
turned the meeting over to him. 

President Kyser raised the ques- 
tion of whether he should ride with 
the Queen in the Tech-Northwest- 
ern parade in Shreveport. Presi- 
dent Kyser explained that al- 
though he would be honored to ride 
with the Queen, he felt the parade 
should be for students only. Presi- 
dent Kyser stated that he would 
leave this decision to the student 
council. After a discussion, Butch 
Chase made a motion that Presi- 
dent Kyser be asked to ride with 
the Queen. Seconded by Steve ; 
Blount. Motion carried. 

Butch Chase made a brief treas- 
ury report. 

Hargrove read the proposed menu 
for the Louisiana Tech- Northwest- 
ern Banquet. After a discussion, it 
was decided to acquire a wider 
price range in menus before mak- 
ing a final decision on the price 
and type menu. 

Steve Blount explained the pro- 
posed budget for the Potpourri. 
Butch Chase moved that we accept 
the 1963-64 Potpourri budget sub- 
ject to approval by the Publica- 
tions Committee. Seconded by Car- 
ol Givens. Motion passed. Blount 
then read and explained the pro- 
posed budget for the Current 
Sauce. After a brief discussion, 
Givens made a motion that the 
student council accept the pro- 
posed Current Sauce budget for 
1963-64. Seconded by Vince Cuel- 
lar. Motion carried. 

After interviewing each appli- 
cant, the council chose Vide Brous- 
sard, Shirley Pace, Dianne Colvin, 
Joyce Sue Crump, Linda Douglas, 
Rodney Elkins, Mike Miller, Har- 
ry Mobley, Guy Nesom, and Pam 
Pepperman as freshman associates. 

Carmen Codina asked if Diet- 
Rite Cola machines could be placed 
in Caddo Hall, President Hargrove 
said the matter would be looked 

After passing out new booklets 
on Parliamentary Procedure, J. O. 
Charrier made a motion that a short 
lecture on Parliamentary Proced- 
ure be given at the next meeting. 
Seconded by Cuellar. The Motion 

Blount reported that the Impacts 
Band had offered to play for the 
Wednesday night dances at $50 
per dance. It was decided that 
treasurer, Butch Chase, should 
study the budget before any final 
decision was made. 

There being no further business, 
Carol Givens made a motion that 
the meeting be adjourned. Second-

In case you didn't know— and 
we'll bet most of you do— that big,

known as a Harvest Moon. But it's 
also known far and wide as a 'Lov-

We believe the coffee in the Stu-

She can be found most of the time 
in the Student Center.

Often when one writes a regular 
column for a newspaper, he won- 
ders how the average student feels 
about the weekly production. 

I got to thinking about this the 
other day, so I decided to do a bit 
of research on the matter. 

I wore a pair of sunglasses, a 
black suit, an unobtrusive red tie 
with purple and orange stripes, 
took my pad and pencil and went 
in search of an average college 

I entered the student center, and 
approached a fellow who was wear- 
ing a frat sweatshirt, a pair of cut- 
off Levis, and dirty sneakers with 
the laces untied. 

I said, "Average college student, 
what is your opinion of the column, 
'Jest Wandering'?" 

He said, "Jest What?" 

Not being discouraged, I turned 
and walked away, realizing my mis- 
take in thinking that he was an 
average college student. 


The next student I encouraged 
was looking through the hole of a 
donut at a girl across the room. 

I asked him what his opinion of 
my column was. 

"Bang!" he replied. 

Then and there, I decided to give 
up on this man on the street bit. 

Instead, I decided to try a dif- 
ferent approach. I am beginning 
a contest. 

Send me $10, and I will send you 
in twenty-five words or less, "Why 
I like the column, 'Jest Wander- 
ing.' " 

As of this issue, the "Current

For you weight-watchers, this 
hint — One fried grasshopper con-

least one school here at North- 
western has told his new faculty 
members this fall that there is a 
rule against smoking in class. It 
applies to teacher and student 
alike, and includes NOT lighting 
up until you depart the classroom. 

A fisherman would have to get 
up early, and fish overtime to like 
it any more, or have better success 
at the sport, than Sam, the genial 
janitor here in Bullard. 

'Twas a sight for sore eyes, we 
mean seeing that Demon, traveling 
up and down the sidelines as North- 
western handed the Northeast grid- 
sters that drubbing Saturday night. 

Somebody failed to get the word. 
Now we are taking no sides, ex- 
pressing no opinions for or against, 
but the AWS advice to new stu- 
dents says any outward display of 
affection is to be avoided. 

Speaking of pranksters and beer 
signs, wonder if you knew that 
there's a rathskeller (beer hall) 
right on the campus at the Univre- 
sity of Wisconsin— and it's patron- 
ized, and quite freely, by students 
and faculty alike????? 

The author of "A Statement on 
Men," a feature appearing in last 
week's "Sauce," has proclaimed 
that the article gave a wrong im- 
pression. It was meant to be a 
farce, but numerous men students 
took it at face value. Anyway, Lola 
Ross offers apologies to all nice 

An absent minded professor was 
in the Student Center the other day 
to get a cup of coffee. He almost 
put a dime in the coffe while hand- 
ing the cashier the spoon. 

Etta Anne Hincker, newly appoint- 
ed dean of nursing, said it: "I 
deem it a great honor to work with 
such a fine student body and staff 
as that of Northwestern. I also re- 
cognize NSC's school of nursing as 
one of the finest." 

At the beginning of football sea- 
son, Coach Clayton told the play- 
ers that he was giving up smoking. 

By golly, he got so enthused dur- 
ing the game Saturday night, that 
when someone gave him a cigar 
he stuck it in his mouth and began 
to smoke. 

After he calmed down, he told 
some bystanders that if he was 
caught smoking again, he would 
make a lap around the track. 

Monday afternoon found him 
making that lap — paying for that 
smoke Saturday night.

Sauce Sports Writer 

Northwestern State College's 
Demons opened up defense of 
their Gulf States Conference 
championship by blasting the In- 
dians of Northeast State 27-19 Sat- 
urday night. 

The Demon s gained their first 
victory of the season by stopping 
Northeast and reached their high- 
est scoring total to date. 

Fullback Bobby Parker tallied 
two touchdowns on runs of three 
and six yards, while fullback 
Claude Patrick and halfback Glenn 
Talbert scored one TD each 

In the first period NSC drove 
to the Indians seven, with Patrick 
supplying most of the yardage, 
first and goal. On the fourth down 
however, from the three, quarter- 
back Donald Beasley fumbled the 
pigskin and Northeast recovered 
to snuff out the threat for the pre- 

Only One 

Northeast had the ball for only 
one down when Morris Douglas 
bobbled and the Demons recovered 
at the Indian 12. This time NSC 
wasted no time getting on the 
scoreboard. Patrick bulled his way 
for six to the six, and rammed 
through the middle for the TD. 
Ed Horton booted the point after 
and Northwestern led by 7-0. 

On the first play of the second 
quarter Roinnie Myrick lofted a 
46 yard aerial to Alton Thomas 
down to the NSC 27. Northeast got 
a first down at the Demon 14 on 
Myrick's 13 yard gain. NSC held 
for three downs but another My- 
rick to Thomas pass got the touch- 
down from the Demon five Willie 
Ragan tied the score at 7-7 with 
the PAT. 

Roger Gorumba took the ensu- 
ing kickoff and returned it 26 
yards, and Beasley hit Johnny Nor- 
man with a pass good for 29 yards, 
giving the Demons a first down at 
the NE 33. Two plays later Talbert 
raced 34 yards for the TD. Hor- 
ton'g kick missed, and the score 
stood at 13-7. 

Come Back 

Northeast came right back to 
tie the count with 4:15 left in he 
half when Myrick scored from the 
15. Sammy Joe Odom broke 
through to block the conversion. 

Northwestern got the lead back 
with a 71 yard march from their 
29. The big play in the drive was 
a pass from Beasley to Pittman, 
good for 31 yards and an NSC first 
down at the NE 18. Parker rum-

bled in from the three following 
a Beasley to Norman aerial and a 
penalty against the Indians for 
hitting late. Horton toed the PAT 
and at the half NSC led by 20-13. 

The only scoring in the third 
chapter was a TD by Ragan on a 
two yard run, after which he 
missed the extra point and NE got 
their last point of the night. 

Final Touchdown 

NSC scored the final touchdown 
when Ronnie Graham fumbled for 
the Indians and the Demons re- 
covered at the visitor's 37. On the 

first play Pittman got 31 down to 
the Northeast six, and Parker got 
his second TD from there. 

The two teams battled each other 
on even terms for the remainder 
of the game. 

Patrick paced the Demons on the 
ground with 80 yards on 14 car- 
ries, and Talbert got 31 on six runs. 
Norman caught four passes good 
for 64 yards to lead NSC in that 

Northeast actually had more 
total yardage than the Demons, 
328-291, but NSC held the edge in 
first downs, 17-15.

While we are human and there-

obligations, at all, to agree with 
these views-expressed or implied-

One of the few things I will at- 
tempt in this column will be to 
predict football games. The games 
that I will cover will be that of all 
the Gulf States Conference teams 
and also those of colleges in this 
and surrounding states. Besides 
predicting games, I will try to give 
information of all sorts pertaining 
to sports. 

Well, here I go with my picks: 

Southeastern over Arlington 
State — Lions are one of the most 
consistent ballclubs in this state. 

La. Tech over Southwestern — 
Bulldogs of Tech should be up for 
this game played on a day in honor 
of their coach. 

Northeast over Howard College- 
Indians will be on the warpath 
from their loss to Northwestern. 

McNeese over the University of 
Tampa — Cowboys should be riding 
high as one of the top teams in the 

Abilene over Northwestern — 

Abilene has shown fine ball play- 
ing after beating two tough foes. 
Demons will be saving energy for 

LSU over Miami — Battle of the 
quarterbacks will be waged as Pat 
Screen will come out on top. 

Georgia Tech over Tennessee — 
Jackets will be stinging mad over 
loss to Tigers of Baton Rouge. 

Mississippi State over Tulane — 
Mississippi State doesn't want the 
Greenies first win pinned on them. 

Arkansas over Baylor — Razor- 
backs want to bring the win back 
to Arkansas. 

Alabama over Florida — Tide 
should sweep over Florida. 

Congratulations goes out to 
Northwestern's Sammy Joe Odom 
who made a full page picture in 
a new magazine called "Louisiana

Speaking about Odoms, did you 
know that John Wayne Odom, 270 
pound tackle, once played drums 
for a dance and concert band? 

You think that football is easy 
to understand? Not according to 
one coed. Seeming to be baffled 
about a certain point, she walked

See you next week. 

Demons To Meet 
Abilene Saturday 

Northwestern State College will 
take on a new foe Saturday night 
as they travel to Abilene, Texas for 
a game with the Abilene Christian 
College Wildcats. The Demons, 
fresh from a victory over the 
Northeast Indians, hope to even 
their season's record as a win 
would make them 2-2. 

The Wildcats posted a 64 season 
record last year and have come up 
with two wins to just one loss this 
season. Their victories were over 
Lamar Tech and Hardin Simmons 
while losing at the hands of East 
Texas State College. 

Gorumba, Eddy Out 

The Demons will be without the 
services of Roger Gorumba and 
Emmett Eddy. Gorumba will be 
out the rest of the season because 
of hepititas while Eddy has dropp- 
ed out of school. 

The Demons will be depending 
heavily on halfback Glenn Talbert. 
Talbert leads the Demons in kick- 
off returns with a 23.6 yard aver- 
age. Talbert also holds the seasons 
longest plays in two departments 
with a 34 yard rush from scrim 
mage and with a 43 yard kickoff 

Up front the Demons will be 
depending on the services of Allen 
Plummer, a sophomore guard from 
Mansfield. Plummer has seen 
plenty of action on both offense 
and defense. He has also been the 
recipient of one of the Demon star 
awards for his recovery of a fum-

Members of Alpha Sigma Alpha 
are giving a slumber party in their 
house Saturday night for the pled- 
ges. The purpose is for each active 
to reveal their secret "lil" sister. 
For three weeks the pledges have 
been receiving strange notes and 
hidden clues as to the identy of 
their sisters and Saturday night 
they will find out who they really 

ing items from the past. This ex- 
hibit will remain open for an in- 
definite period. 

Among the oldest items to be 
viewed is the vertebra of a whale, 
which was found in Montgomery, 
La., and is approximately 55-million 
years old. Other exhibits include a 
dinosaur bone from Wyoming, 120- 
million years of age, a meteorite 
from Vermont, gold ore from Colo- 
rado, jade from Burma, topaz from 
Brazil, and a volcanic bomb. 

The whole idea of the exhibition 
is to show how varied the field of 
geology is, and the many oppor- 
tunities that await any young man 
or woman who might be interested 
in such a career. Dr. Noel states 
he plans to change the exhibit regu- 
larly in order to show students as 
many items as possible. 

A future exhibit will show the 
various colors many of these mine- 
rals have under ultraviolet light.

Year For Building Debate Team, 
Forensics Coach Donald Graham Says 

by Marie Bacque 

The debate squad at Northwest- 
ern is now entering a "year for 
building," stated Donald Graham, 
assistant professor of speech and 
forensics coach. Graham stressed 
the fact that, although last year's 
record was not impressive because 
of a budget deficiency, the squad 
gained valuable experience. This 
building of a strong debate team 
will take time; all that is needed 
now are the students with enough 
interest and fortitude to join. 

Graham believes that the experi- 
ence a student gains in debate, 
whether he is a speech major or 
not, will be a great help to him in 
the future. The debate program is 
not only for the glory of the school 
but rather to enable students to 
get experience for his own person- 
al satisfaction. 

Because debate will take, up 
quite a bit of a student's time, 
Graham recommends that those 
students who wish to be on the 
squad have at least a C-plus ave- 

Debate Topic 

The debate topic for colleges this 
year will be: "Resolved That the 
Federal Government Should Guar- 
antee an Opportunity for Higher 

Education to All Qualified High 
School Graduates." 

Eight trips for the squad were 
included in the tentative schedule 
for the year. They are a two day 
discussion meet at Louisiana State 
University, in Baton Rouge on Oct. 
25-26; the Louisiana Polytechnic 
tournament in Ruston, which in- 
cludes contests in debate, oration, 
extemporaneous and radio speak- 
ing; the first week in December 
there will be a beginners tourney 
at Mississippi College, in Clinton; 
and in the second week of Decem- 
ber, the Louisiana Speech Associa- 
tion sponsors a three day meet at 
the University of Southwestern 
Louisiana in Lafayette, for both 
high school and college contest- 
ants. Northwestern students will 
participate in college events and 
judge high school contests. 

Toughest Meet 

In January Northwestern's squad 
will journey to its toughest tourn- 
ament of the year at Millsaps Col- 
lege in Jackson, Miss.; Feb. will 
find the debaters at the Universi- 
ty of Southern Mississippi in Hat- 
tesburg; there will be two meets 
in March, the first a meet at Missi- 
ssippi State College for women in 
Columbus and the annual North-

With tuition costs steadily on the rise, more and more under- 
graduates are looking into the student loan plan. If you are 
one such, you would do well to consider the case of Leonid 

Leonid, the son of an unemployed bean gleaner in Straight- 
ened Circumstances, Montana, had his heart set on going to 
college, but his father, alas, could not afford to send him. 
Leonid applied for a Regents Scholarship, but his reading 
speed, alas, was not very rapid — three words an hour — and 
before he could finish the first page of his exam, the Regents 
tad closed their briefcases crossly and gone home. Leonid then 
applied for an athletic scholarship, but he had, alas, only a single 
athletic skill— picking up beebees with his toes— and this, alas, 
aroused only fleeting enthusiasm among the coaches 

And then— happy day!— Leonid learned of the student loan 
plan: he could borrow money for his tuition and repay it in 
easy installments after he left school! 

Happily Leonid enrolled in the Southeastern Montana Col- 

lege of Lanolin and Restoration Drama and happily began a 
college career that grew happier year by year. Indeed, it be- 
came altogether ecstatic in his senior year because Leonid met 
a coed named Anna Livia Plurabelle with hair like beaten gold 
and eyes like two sockets full of Lake Louise. Love gripped 
them in its big moist palm, and they were betrothed on St. 
Crispin's Day. 

Happily they made plans to be married immediately after 
commencement— plans, alas, that were never to come to fruition 
because Leonid, alas, learned that Anna Livia, like himself, 
was in college on a student loan, which meant that he not only 
had to repay his own loan after graduation but also Anna 
Livia's and the job, alas, that was waiting for Leonid at the 
Butte Otter Works simply did not pay enough, alas, to cover 
both loans, plus rent and food and clothing and television 

Heavy hearted, Leonid and Anna Livia sat down and lit 
Marlboro Cigarettes and tried to find an answer to their prob- 
lem—and, sure enough, they did! I do not know whether or 
not Marlboro Cigarettes helped them find an answer; all I know 
is that Marlboros taste good and look good and filter good, and 
when the clouds gather and the world is black as the pit from 
pole to pole, it is a heap of comfort and satisfaction to be sure 
that Marlboros will always provide the same easy pleasure, 
the same unstinting tobacco flavor, in all times and climes and 
conditions. That's all I know. 

Leonid and Anna Livia, I say, did find an answer— a very 
simple one. If their student loans did not come due until they 
left school, why then they just wouldn't leave school! So after 
receiving their bachelor's degrees, they re-enrolled and took 
master's degrees. After that they took doctor's degrees-loads 
and loads of them— until today Leonid and Anna Livia, both 
aged 87, both still in school, hold doctorates in Philosophy, 
Humane Letters, Jurisprudence, "Veterinary Medicine, Civil 
Engineering, Optometry, Woodpulp, and Dewey Decimals. 

Their student loans, at the end of the last fiscal year, 
amounted to a combined total of nineteen million dollars -a 
sum which they probably would have found some difficulty in 
repaying had not the Department of the Interior recently de- 
clared them a National Park. 19M M „

Student, College 
Officials Discuss 
Student Center 

Members of the Social Commit- 
tee of the Northwestern State Col- 
lege Student Council met this week 
with representatives fo the office 
of Student Relations in an effort 
to plan a program of activities for 
the use of the Student Center. Pre- 
liminary discussions centered 
around furnishings and activities 
that might be conducted within the 
present existing policies and new 
ones were proposed. 

Plans include the placing of 
movable walls so as to form a cor- 
ridor along the wall by the book- 
store and post office. It will extend 
across the ball room to the en- 
trance to the Student Center Cafe. 
The area behind these walls would 
be dedicated to the active garhes, 
quiet games and a reading area. A 
sample of the proposed wall is now 
being constructed and should be 
in place shortly. Sub-committees 
are studying furniture, games and 
other equipment.

tured in the "Shreveport Times" 
last Sunday, spoke to the club 
about the little known cloistered 
way of life. The sisters plan to visit 
all the college groups in the dio- 
cese of Louisiana before concluding 
their tour.

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra 

Dallas Symphony Orchestra To Perform Tuesday 

by Lola Ross 

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra 
will be this year's first presenta- 
tion of the Natchitoches-North- 
western Concert Association. The 
orchestra, under the direction of 
Danold Johanos, will perform 
Tuesday at 8 p.m in the Fine Arts 
Auditorium, according to Joseph 
B. Carlucci, chairman of the as- 

During its 63-year history, the 
activities of the orchestra have 
been expanded to include per- 

formances outside of Dallas. Com- 
posed entirely of professional 
musicians, the symphony group 
has become known throughout the 
United States as one of the na- 
tion's finest. 


Musical director Johanos, a na- 
tive of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has 
been acclaimed for his unerring 
musical instinct. Earlier this year 
the orchestra performed in Mon- 
roe, and the "Monroe News-Star" 
proclaimed that "indeed, there's 

TO REIGN OVER activities in Shreveport this Saturday when NSC meets Tech, are 
left to right: Jeanie Marler, of Alexandria; Chris Newsome, Leesville; Carolyn Thom- 
as, Shreveport; Linda Hansford, Doyline; Queen Cecilia Shea, Shreveport; Sherry Lynn 
Boucher, Springhill; Wilma Lee Hunt, Shreveport; Nancy Clayton, Natchitoches; and 
Charlotte Ann Hill, Shreveport. 

more in Texas than oil; there's 
good music in large measure." 

In 1962 Johanos received the 
international honor of being asked 
to conduct several concerts on the 
regular series for the celebrated 
Concertgebouw Orchestra of Am- 
sterdam, Netherlands. After this 
he was hailed as "a born conduc- 
tor" and "convincing proof of the 
artistic potential of the United 
States." He will conduct the Con- 
certgebouw Orchestra again this 
season in Amsterdam, plus guest- 
conducting of the Philadelphia 
Orchestra, the Rochester Philhar- 
monic, the Vancouver and Denver 
symphony orchestras. 

Named Director 

Johanos, 35, began conducting 
while in high school. He later at- 
tended the well-known Eastman 
School of Music. His first profes- 
sional effort was with the Altoo- 
na, Pa. Symphony. In 1955 he be- 
gan a year's study in Europe, and 
followed this with a year of work 
with Eugene Ormandy in Phila- 
delphia. After 18 more months of 
study abroad, Johanos was invited 
to become associate conductor at 

Students will be admitted to 
the NSC performance on I.D cards. 
Other persons are admitted with 
season tickets. According to Dr. 
Carlucci, season tickets are still 
on sale at the office of the music 

Another artist series production 
is slated for Nov. 18 and two are 
scheduled for the spring semester. 


Due to the large absence of stu- 
dents from campus during the 
Tech game weekend, there will be 
no Friday night dance this week. 

Dr. Colleen Nelkin termed last 
Friday night's dance as a success. 
The dances, sponsored by the Con- 
temporary Dance Club, are held 
each Friday night in the Women's 
Gymnasium from 8 - 10:30. All 
students are encouraged to come 
and join in on the fun!

"Sauce" Receives 
Second Class Rate 

The "Current Sauce" was given a 
second class rating during the 
spring semester in a critical anal-

According to the ACP, second 
class ratings are given to the ma-

doing a good job in a workmanlike 
manner. Wayne Summers edited

Lentz Will Speak 
At Assembly Tues. 

Serge Lentz, world renowned 
journalist and adventurer who has 
just returned from Red China, will 
speak at an assembly in the Fine 
Arts Auditorium Tuesday at 10 

Posing as a textile buyer, Lentz 
got the V.I.P. treatment from the 
Reds as he toured the cities of 
Shanghai, Canton and Peking. He 
also detoured several times into 
the rural sections of Red China to 
find out first hand, how the na- 
tives of the Peoples Republic really 
live under Communist domination. 

Plans Changed 

Serge Lentz planned to stay in 
the country longer than three 
weeks, however he changed his 
plans when two Chinese Secret 
Service agents in Canton woke him 
in the middle of the night and sub- 
jected him to an all night interro- 
gation. When they finally let him 
go the next day, Lentz decided the 
Red Carpet was quickly being pull- 
ed from under his feet, and he 
rapidly made plans to leave. Col- 
lecting his cameras, and arranging 
for his film to be smuggled out of 
the country, he left the hotel leav- 
ing his luggage behind and caught 
a train for a nerve-wrecking jour- 
ney to the border and safety in 
Hong Kong. 


Back in this country, Lentz was 
interviewed by Walter Cronkite on 
Sept. 11, and the nation was amazed 
by his stories. Since then he has 
been on German and European 
news shows, and is writing the 
complete story in the "Saturday 
Evening Post," and "Newsweek" 
magazines. A seven part series on 
his trip has appeared in the "Wash-

With an impressive background

and a foreign correspondent, he is 
well qualified to give an interpera-

travels behind the Iron Curtain.

More About Our Policy 

We think it wise to say more concerning the policy of the 
"Current Sauce" to stop using material which we feel will 
tend to advocate or promote integration. 

Our editorial, needless to say, was misunderstood — hy 
some whom we thought had the intelligence to understand it. 

To set the record straight, we are not for, nor do we ad- 
vocate a news blackout when it comes to information about 
integration, or about any other subject. 

If a speaker on campus gives an intelligent discussion on 
integration and segregation, you'll find a story about it in the 
"Sauce." We should be the last to hold any kind of news from 
the public which we serve. 

Again, we will not print any material which tends to ad- 
vocate or promote integration. Nor will we be a member of 
any organization which is promoting integration. What other 
people believe and hold membership in is their own business. 

It is true that the battle against integration should not be 
waged in ignorance and darkness, but how in the world can a 
newspaper fight something in one week's issue and in the next 
week's issue advocate it? It just can't be done. 

We feel that playing around with unwritten policy is like 
groping around in the dark, knowing not where to go. 

We are not ashamed of what we believe in and what we 
stand for and we don't care who knows it. One of the traditions 
of people of the Old South was that they had courage, fortitude 
and determination. Yes, courage to fight for what they thought 
was right. 

We regard the opinions of others very highly. And when 
we say something about them, we are not talking about them 
personally, but we are referring to their attitudes and opinions 
and philosophies. 

Our attitude on the matter, we think, is now clear beyond 
a doubt. 

ill Two Birds With One Stone 

The Demons need support. Football players agree that the 
cheers from the student body do boost their spirits, and since 
the NSC-Tech classic will be one of the toughest games of the 
season, every booster is needed to back the team in Shreveport 

The day's events should provide enjoyment for any North- 
western student. Besides the game, there will be the fair, the 
parade, and the after-game dances in the Shreveport area. We 
can kill a couple of birds with one stone by journeying to the 
big city Saturday — we can back our team and offer ourselves 
a little recreation. 

Northwestern lost its game to Abilene Christian last week- 
end, while Tech stomped Southwestern Louisiana 48-0. From 
one viewpoint, we might say that the Bulldogs have gained 
self-confidence from their victory, and the Demons possibly 
lost theirs to some extent after a weak seasonal beginning and 
the recent loss. This is all the more reason to render an appear- 
ance at State Fair Stadium in an effort to back the team of our 
choice — the Demons. 

This Is National Newspaper Week 

This is National Newspaper Week. 

Newspapers survive on their publics and strive to please 
them. The "Current Sauce" is no exception. If our paper is to 
please its public, the student body, it must have both criticism 
and interest. This year's paper has had much interest from 
NSC students, but has failed to receive open criticism which 
might help it to serve the student body better. 

Since this is National Newspaper Week, we ask for real 
notice; is the paper what you want it to be in content, make-up 
and coverage? We open our doors for your complaints and 
helpful hints. 

It seems that the administration is almost our only critical 
analyzer. But it is not the administration that we serve solely; 
we are primarily a medium for the students on the campus and 
center our workings around them.

The Editor

Dear Editor: 

Re: today's lead editorial on page 
three, you certainly have every 
right to register editorial opposi- 
tion to integration, and to decline 
to print material which is obvious- 
ly integrationist propaganda. How- 
ever, your stated policy of refusing 
to run anything which merely de- 
scribes or depicts integration, con- 
stitutes a denial of legitimate in- 
formation to your readers, and 
represents an ostrich-like attitude 
which has no place at an institu- 
tion of higher education. 

For example, the N.S.A. endorse- 
ment of the march on Washington, 
while perhaps deplorable, is none- 
theless something of which stu- 
dents ought to be aware, just as 
they ought to be aware of the de- 
tails of President Kennedy's civil 
rights bill, which I also consider 
deplorable. I should imagine that 
segregationists would be among 
those most anxious to be kept in- 
formed on matters of this nature. 
Do you consider a news blackout 
to be among the "traditions of the 
Old South," or, for that matter, 
among the traditions of respon- 
sible journalism? 
Yours sincerely,

Hot Coffee 

Current Sauce 
Northwestern State College 
Natchitoches, Louisiana 

You are perfectly within your 
rights as "Sauce" editor to com- 
ment on any grievances Northwest- 
ern students may have in regard 
to facilities that should be im- 
proved. However, I think you go a 
little too far in complaining about 
coffee that is served too "hot" 
(last issue's "Editor's Easy Chair). 

I could see your point if the Stu- 
dent Center served coffee that is 
too cold. But since the coffee is not 
boiled nor stale (personally, I pre- 
fer other brands, though), I think 
you could devote your energies to 
something more constructive. After 
all, college students should be cap- 
able of cooling their own coffee. 

If the Student Center is fated to 
be exposed to your baptism of fire, 
I suggest you campaign to have it 
opened earlier on Sunday in order 
that the poor frustrated individu- 
als who slash its furniture will have 
access to the gum machines at that

If you're a LOYAL Demon you 
swell with pride— as did we on 
Saturday night — when a radio an- 
nouncer observes that he's always 
disappointed when he inspects col- 
lege campuses other than ours. 

Did you notice the attractive 
sign, advertising next year's 250th 
anniversary of Natchitoches, and 
the 80th birthday of Northwest- 
ern, displayed on a power pole at 
the Lemee House during last week- 
end's historical tours? A very 
good idea, we'd say! 

The weather, so we're told, de- 
layed the departure of our grid 
team (by plane) for Abilene last 
Saturday — upsetting both coaches 
and players, and worrying many 
local fans, including numbers of 
student supporters of the Demons. 

Speaking of the Demons, it's to 
be deplored that illness has caused 
the loss of two capable players 
right before the tussle with Tech. 
And, inasmuch as we're having a 
GO TO THE GAME at the State 
Fair Saturday? We certainly hope 
so — and the cheer leaders do, too. 
How's about lending your voice to 1 
help spur the boys on to victory? ' 

When we see a gal with the stuff 
applied liberally, we are reminded 
that NO human beings, and just a 
few mink we've seen actually have 
hair like theirs! 

As you read this, ye olde editor 
and his right-handed man, Duffy 
Wall, will be in New York City at 
the annual convention of the As- 
sociated Collegiate Press. We hope 
to learn enough during the three 
day affair, to come back here and 
put you out a better paper. 

Thanks to everyone for helping 
us get the paper out early this 
week, thus enabling Duffy and me 
to go to this very important meet- 
ing in New York. 

Red Hennigan looked like 
Christmas trees when he departed 
Natchitoches on the planes with 
those Demon footballers Satur- 
day — what we mean is that he had 
cameras, lightmeters and miscel- 
laneous equipment draped all 
about his person. 

Ever notice how many of the 
gals on the Northwestern Campus 
are using that "spray" stuff that 
streaks the hair as though it were 
a-graying? Chances are that 10 
years from now they'll be using 
a spray that will hide gray hairs. 

This week I have decided that 
there will be absolutely no criti- 
cism against NSC in my column. 
Instead, I am going to talk about 
everyone's favorite subject. 

Have you ever thought about the 
idea that sex is like the weather? 
Everyone talks about it, but no one 
does anything about it. 

Speaking of sex, campus conver- 
sations centered last week on the 
"thing" at the parish fair. I just 
can't feature anyone getting their 
jollies with a job like that. 

And speaking of fairs.this is the 
week-end that the NSC-Tech bann- 
er makes a round trip to Shreve- 
port. Let's give 'em Hell, Demons, 
and Wreck Tech.

I would like to salute the ladies 
in their efforts to preserve the

One request however, please put 
small bulbs in those lamps that are 
being installed on the river front! 

Finally, the first complete re-

The "Current Sauce" is unique. 
So far as we know, we are the only

editor. Yes indeed, and his name is 
Pat McMeel. 

So if you're a coffee drinker, 
why don't you drop by the "Sauce" 
office and get a cup and chat a 
while? If you don't like coffee, 
there's a coke vending machine in 
the hall, and we'll even buy you 
one. Drop by.

Abilene Gives NSC 28-18 Defeat 

From the, 


By - Uerry Brill 

I 5 


by Rick Woodson 
Sauce Sports Writer 

Northwestern State College's 
Demons got involved in another 
high scoring duel last Saturday, 
but this time the Wildcats from 
Abilene Christian College in Texas 
handed NSC a 28-18 defeat. 

For the second straight weekend 
Northwestern and its opponents 
scored a total of 46 points in free- 
wheeling battles, the Demons 
knocking off Northeast by 27-19. 

Northwestern saw its record fall 
to one win and three losses as de- 
fense seems to be the weak point 
in NSC's grid arsenal. ACC boosted 
its record to 4-2 with the win. 

A fourth quarter touchdown by 
the Wildcats put the game out of 
reach for the Demons, who were 
trailing by only 21-18 at the time. 

NSC opened the scoring in the 
first period when halfback Glenn 
Talbert climaxed an 83 yard drive 
with a 22 yard burst off right 
tackle A two-point conversion was 
nullified by a illegal motion pen- 
alty, and Carroll Long's kick missed 
for a 6-0 Demon lead. 

Cats Move Ahead 

The Cats moved ahead as the 
first quarter ended on a pass from 
quarterback Charlie Reynolds to 
halfback Buddy Rawls good for 22 
yards and the TD. Roger Young- 
blood toed the point after and ACC 
never relinguished the lead. 

In the second stanza Abilene 
Christian moved down to the NSC 
30 yard line where the Demons 
took over on downs, and on the 
first play halfback Jerry Burton 
fumbled and end Jerry Anderson 
recovered to set up the Wildcats' 
second score. Dennis Hagaman hit 
left tackle for the final three yards, 
Youngblood made the PAT good 
and the score stood at 14-6. 

Northwestern ran only two plays 

following the ensuing kickoff when 
Bubba Brown, a halfback, picked 
off a Herbie Smith aerial. Four 
plays later Reynolds hit Brown 
from the 11 for the tally. Again 
Youngblood was accurate and the 
Demons found themselves on the 
short end of a 21-6 halftime score. 

25 In 30 

The Demons came out throwing 
in the second half, tossing 25 times 
in the final 30 minutes. Al Moreau 
pounced on a fumble at the ACC 
38 and following a holding penalty 
against the Demons, Donald Beas- 
ley pitched to Talbert for a 51 
yard scoring strike. A Beasley pass 
fell incomplete for a two point con- 
version, and ACC lead by 21-12 
going into the final quarter. 

NSC opened the fourth quarter 
with Talbert getting 14 around 
right end giving the Demons a first 
and 10 at mid-field. The drive al- 
most stalled, but Beasley threw to 

Roy Gentry at the ACC 15. Another 
Beasley to Gentry got the TD, and 
Long missed the PAT, and the De- 
mons were within three, 21-18. 

Abilene Christian took the kick- 
off and drove from their 34 for the 
final score of the night. Reynolds 
went in on a quarterback sneak 
from the one, and Youngblood con- 
verted to ice the game up for ACC. 

Northwestern passed 29 times in 
the contest and completed 11, for 
171 yards, and added 126 more on 
the ground, for 297 yards total of- 
fense. ACC got 204 yards rushing 
and 116 in the air and 320 total 
offense. First downs in the game 
were even at 17 each. 

Talbert carried four times for 
48 yards and. Burton got 40 on 10 
tries. One key-note in the contest 
was the fact that the Wildcats held 
all-Gulf States Conference fullback 
Claude Patrick to only 25 yards on 
11 trips. 

Go to hell, Tech. Givem hell, 
Demons. Perhaps that is all you 
are going to hear this week as 
everyone in Demonland is prepar- 
ing for the upcoming football 
game between NSC and Tech. Stu- 
dent participation seems to be 
building up as everyone is realiz- 
ing that we are going to Wreck 
Tech for the third straight year. 

Last week turned out to be a 
hazardous week for football pre- 
dictions as there were upsets on 
about every game played. This 
writer hit on six out of ten for a 
.600 average. The games I missed 
were upsets to me even though 
they weren't upsets to anyone else. 
I did so bad last week that I 
thought I might as well go deeper 
down the drain by predicting the 

placed on both the offensive and 
defensive honor roll. 

Quarterback for the Demons 
will be Don Beasley. Beasley has 
thrown a total of 42 passes and 
completed 19 of them for 299 
yards and one T.D 

Halfbacks will be Jerry Burton 
and Glenn Talbert. Burton has 
run for a total of 150 yards while 
Talbert has picked up 98. Talbert 
is the leading scorer for the team 
with 18 points. 

At the fullback slot will be 
Claude Patrick. Patrick is the 
workhorse for the Demons as he 
has picked up 206 yards and has 
scored 12 points.

on the football team, we now find 
Herbie Smith plays the ukelele. 

After I finally explained to the 
coed who wanted to know what 
the kickoff was, she came out with 
the question of what do they do 
with the ball once they get it. 

A word of congratulations goes 
out to the cheerleaders who are 
doing such a fine job this year. 

Did you know that the starting 
lineup for the Demons weighs 
close to VA tons? 

See you next week. 


Roy Gentry 

Stagg Award Goes 
To Roy Gentry 

This week's Alonzo Stagg award 
goes to Roy Gentry, senior end 
from Natchitoches. Gentry was 
singled out for this award by the 
coaches of Northwestern for his 
fine showing on offense in the 
game against Abilene Saturday. 
Gentry caught six passes good for 
85 yards and also scored a touch- 
down. He was also the only Demon 
player to be named to the honor 
roll on offense. 

Other players named to the 
honor roll for their fine defensive 
showing were halfback Glenn Tal- 
bert and end Ken Hood 

Star awards were given to Bob- 
by Parker for his pass intercep- 
tion and also to Al Dodd, Sammy 
Joe Odom and Al Moreau for their 
recovery of a fumble. 

Demons Will Try To Regain Winning 
Stride As They Meet Tech Saturday 

by Jerry Brill 

Saturday night Northwestern State College will try to 
regain their winning stride as they travel to Shreveport for 
the annual state fair game with Louisiana Tech. This game 
will be one in a series that started 
in 1911 and has seen the Demons 
win 13 while losing 30 and tying 
four. Kickoff will be at 8 p.m. and 
is expected to take place in front 
of some 25,000 fans. 

Probable starters for the De- 
mons at the ends will be Corwyn 
Aldredge and Roy Gentry. Al- 
dredge has shown fine defensive 
talent while Gentry has sparkled 
on offense. Gentry has been a re- 
cipient of the Alonzo Stagg Award.

Colored Cords' 
Meanings Differ 

Different colored cords worn by 
the men and sponsors of the Re- 
serve Officer Training Corps of 
Northwestern signify the branch 
or team of which that person is 
a member. 

The white cord is worn by the 
commander of the Black Knights 
and is worn on the left shoulder. 

The black cord signifies a mem- 
ber of the Black Knights, while 
the yellow is a drill team member. 

The black interwoven with 
white is worn by upperclassmen 
only, and means they are a mem- 
ber of the Association of the Unit- 
ed States Army. 

The co-ed sponsors wear a white 
interwoven with purple cord

Memories of A Beauty Queen Many, 
Says Miss Holiday In Dixie 

by Diane Taylor 

What are the memories of a 
beauty queen? Senior business edu- 
cation major, Patsy Lowderbach, 
who reigned as "Miss Holiday In 
Dixie" from April 1962 to April 
1963, can answer that question with 

Traveling. . .beauty appointments 
. . .numerous escorts. . .festivals. . . 
new faces. . .gorgeous clothes. . . 
hectic schedules. . .meeting cele- 
brities. These are the images im- 
pressed upon the mind of one who 
represented Louisiana all over the 

Much Travel 

Patsy traveled to many cities and 
was present at many contests, 
sometimes as a contestant, often as 
an honor guest. 

"There were banquets and par- 
ties and festivals," she recalls. 
"And everywhere I went I was 
chaperoned." Even when escorts 
were assigned, she explained to the 
"Current Sauce," her regular chap- 
erone was present. "But," she 
hastened to add, "actually she was 
a very nice lady." 

Because it was necessary for her 
to be in Shreveport, scene of the 
Holiday-in-Dixie activities, Patsy 
transferred to Centenary College 
for a semester last year. During 
her reign, she met many dignitar- 
ies, including such celebrities as 
the famous Beverly Hillbillies. 

State Pageant 

In July, the Northwestern State 
College co-ed participated~in~the 
Miss Louisiana Pageant and was 
named first runner-up to the title. 
From there, she went to Chicago 
to enter the National Sweetheart 
Festival, entries of which are the 
first runners-up from each state 
pageant. She was presented in the 
Cotton Bowl at the Texas State 
Fair. She was sent to represent the 
state at the gala Mardi Gras Ball, 
held annually in February in Wash- 
ington, D. C.

Stevens 1 Research 
Findings Published 

Melvin H. Stevens, assistant pro- 
fessor of agronomy at Northwest- 
ern State College, recently pub- 
lished findings from his research 
in agronomy with the American 
Society for Horticultural Science, 
Vol. 82, 1963. The research was de- 
veloped at Oklahoma State Univer- 
sity under the National Science 
Foundation Grant during the sum- 
mer of 1962. 

In basic plant physiology, the 
purpose was to measure the differ- 
ent concentrations of soluble salts 
in the soil and their effect on plant 
growth. The results are for check- 
ing any soil for soluble salt con- 
centrations needed for proper 
plant growth. 

It was determined that some 
electronic devices could be develop- 
ed which would accurately mea- 
sure the concentration of soluble 
salts. This is an important gain to 
agriculture according to the re- 
search findings. 

Stevens was offered a $5,000 
grant from the National Science 
Foundation to attend the agrono- 
my department at the University 
of Minnesota for 10 months. He 
deemed it necessary to decline the 
offer and remain at Northwestern.

(By the Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!" and, 
"Barefoot Boy With Cheek.") 


Today, foregoing levity, let us turn our keen young minds to 
the principal problem facing American colleges today: the 
population explosion. Only last week four people exploded in 
Cleveland, Ohio— one of them while carrying a plate of soup. 
In case you're thinking such a thing couldn't happen anywhere 
but in Cleveland, let me tell you about two other cases last 
week— a 45-year-old man in Provo, Utah, and a 19-year-old 
girl in Northfield, Minnesota. And, in addition, there was a 
near miss in High Point, North Carolina— an eight-year-old 
boy who was saved only by the quick thinking of his cat, Fred.who 
pushed the phone off the hook with his muzzle and dialed the 
department of weights and measures. (It would, perhaps, have 
been more logical for Fred to dial the fire department, but one 
can hardly expect a cat to summon a fire engine which is fol- 
lowed by a Dalmatian, can one?) 

But I digress. The population explosion, I say, is upon us. 
It is, of course, cause for concern but not for alarm, because I 
feel sure that science will ultimately find an answer. After all, 

four people e& 

has not science in recent years brought us such marvels as the 
maser, the bevatron, and the Marlboro filter? Oh, what a saga 
of science was the discovery of the Marlboro filter! Oh, what a 
heart-rending epic of trial and error, of dedication and perse- 
verance! And, in the end, what a triumph it was when the 
Marlboro research team, after years of testing and discarding 
one filter material after another— iron, nickel, tin, antimony, 
obsidian, poundcake— finally emerged, tired but happy, from 
their laboratory, carrying in their hands the perfect filter 
cigarette! Indeed, what rejoicing there still is whenever we 
light up a Marlboro which comes to us in soft pack and Flip- 
Top Box in all fifty states and Cleveland! 

Yes, science will ultimately solve the problems arising from 
the population explosion, but meanwhile America r s colleges 
are in dire straits. Where can we find classrooms and teachers 
for today's gigantic influx of students? 

Well sir, some say the solution is to adopt the trimester sys- 
tem. This system, already in use at many colleges, eliminates 
summer vacations, has three semesters per annum instead of 
two, and compresses a four-year-course into three years. 

This is, of course, good, but is it good enough? Even under 
the trimester system the student has occasional days off. More- 
over, his nights are utterly wasted in sleeping. Is this the kind 
of all-out attack that is indicated? 

I say no. I say desperate situations call for desperate reme- 
dies. I say that partial measures will not solve this crisis. I 
say we must do no less than go to school every single day of 
the year. But that is not all. I say we must go to school 24 
hours of every day! 

The benefits of such a program are, as you can see, obvious. 
First of all, the classroom shortage will disappear because all 
the dormitories can be converted into classrooms. Second, the 
teacher shortage will disappear because all the night watchmen 
can be put to work teaching solid state physics and Restoration 
drama. And finally, overcrowding will disappear because every,

'Red China 7 French 
Editor's Topic at 
Assembly Tuesday 

by Sharon Hillman 
Sauce Staff Writer 

Serge Lentz, editor of "Paris 
Match," the French counterpart of 
"Life," spoke on "The Impatient 
Giant, Red China," at a general 
assembly in the Fine Arts Auditor- 
ium, Tuesday. 

Lentz, a student of political sci- 
ence and a foreign correspondent, 
is one of the few western corres- 
pondents having had an opportuni- 
ty to see how the Chinese live 
under the People's Republic. 
Ideological Dispute 

According to Lentz, there is 
much evidence of the ideological 
dispute between the Chinese and 
Russian Communist parties. A cam- 
paign by two leading Chinese mag- 
azines had aroused the man-in-the 
street to a violent hatred of the 
Russians. This fact may be illus- 
trated by the mass exodus of over 
10,000 Russians from China. 

Articles written during this cam- 
paign, attacking all communist 
Parties except the Chinese and 
Korean, implied that if for any 
reason communism was in "bad 
shape", it was the fault of the 

Attitude Toward West 

At the end of his speech, Lentz 
stated that there are two factors 
which influence the attitude of 
the Chinese toward the West, The 
first factor, a tremendous hate and 
fear of Americans, is kept alive by 
continuous propaganda. The second 
js an inherent superiority complex. 
This complex permits the Com- 
munists to convince the Chinese 
People that Americans and Euro- 
peans are truly miserable.

by the Homecoming Day football 

This year, graduates of 1903, 
1913, 1923, 1933, 1943, 1953, and 
1963 will be honored in a day 
which will begin at 8:30 a.m. with 
registration and coffee in Varna- 
do Hall, according to Joe Webb, 
Alumni Secretary. The Alumni 
Association will meet at 9:30 a.m., 
with the annual Homecoming Par-

port; and Cheryl Yarborough, sophomore, Mansfield. Seated is Queen Celia Ann Willis, 
a sophomore from Coushatta. 

ade beginning at 10 a.m. 

The theme, "Tradition, Service, 
Success: Natchitoches 250 years; 
Northwestern 80 years," will be 
described as well as the forthcom- 
ing anniversary observance of the 
founding of Natchitoches in May 
of 1964, Webb said. 

Appropriate Theme 

The theme is appropriate in that 
Natchitoches is the oldest setle- 
ment west of the Mississippi River 
and is rich not only in tradition 
but in history and folklore as well. 
It has been used as a stepping 
stone in the creation of the west, 
and has housed such notable fig- 
ures as Sam Houston, Jim Bowie, 
and Stephen F. Austin, to name a 
few. One need only to look at 
this city to see it has kept much 
of the tradition of times gone by. 
Many buildings are adorned with 
the Spanish lacework that is us- 
ually seen only in New Orleans. 

NSC Keep Pace 

Northwestern has also kept pace 
with the theme. Since its humble 
start in 1864 with a scattered 
building here and there, it has 
grown to proportions equal to a 
university. Northwestern provides 
a service not only to the local area 
but to the country as well by pro- 
viding badly needed teachers and 
other educated men and women to 
fill the vacancies that will always 

Among the returning graduates, 
eight members of the class of 1903 
whose addresses are on file have 
been asked to return. Sixty years 
have passed since they left the 
campus; and for some, this will 
be a rare experience indeed. 

The climax of the Homecoming 
celebration will be held at Demon 
Stadium later in the afternoon 
when the Homecoming Queen Ce- 
lia Ann Willis, and members of her 
court are presented in pre-game 
ceremonies, with the band, drill 
team and Demonettes providing the 

Saturday night all fraternities 
and sororities will hold open house 
to greet the returning grads, and 
a dance will be given in the Stu- 
dent Center at 8 p.m. 

Criminology Class 
Visits State Pen 

The criminology class of North- 
weseern State College toured Loui- 
siana State penitentiary of Angola 
and the Avoyelles Parish sheriff's 
department Thursday. Dr. Ora V. 
Watson is instructor of the class. 

Sheriff F. O. Didier explained 
the operations of the Avoyelles 
sheriff's department and the jun- 
ior deputy program employed 
there. He also escorted the group 
on a tour of the parish jail in 

At Angola, the group visited the 
prison dorms and camps, the edu- 
cational facilities, the churches, 
dining hall and viewed the electric 
chair. A brief history of the pro- 
cedure and life of a prisoner at 
Angola and the operation of the 
prison plant was given by an offi- 
cer conducting the tour. 

The same group visited the Nat- 
chitoches Parish jail a few weeks

J. D. Salinger's "Catcher in the 
Rye" has, for the last decade, been 
one of the most controversial books 
ever published. It's popularity 
seems to extend mostly to colleges 
and universities and today it re- 
mains a best seller. 

The story is simply that of Hold- 
en Caulfield, a sensitive but very 
emotionally upset boy, who tells 
the story of his fight with the 
world and it's people. His cruel 
rebellion and obscene description 
of life leave the reader with the 
thought that this cannot possibly 
be a typical story of youth. Yet, it 
is accepted as such by many young 
readers today. Though it is the 
story of a high school boy, it is for 
older readers. 

My first reaction to the book 
was a feeling of pure disgust and 
of horror at the thought of anyone 
profitably reading it. But, on sec- 
ond thought, the story would be of 
more interest for boys rather than 
girls because it is a story of a 
young man's attempt to find a 
place for himself in this world. 

There are many contrasting opin- 
ions about "Catcher in the Rye" 
and one of the strongest points 
given in it's favor is that it may 
let other young boys know that 
they are not alone in their con- 
fusion and rebellion. My only an- 
swer to this is that those same 
young boys could simply take this 
book as an example and justifica- 
tion of their own actions.

Another View 

We are seldom fortunate enough 
to be given a true picture of human 
life. When the opportunity pre- 
sents itself, we should take full 
advantage of it. J. D. Salinger, in 
his "The Catcher in the Rye," has 
given us just this opportunity. 

"The Catcher" exposes to us the 
very soul of an adolescent, his 
drives, ambitions, happiness, and 
confusions of the growing to adult- 
hood in the concrete jungle — New 
York City. Holden Caulfield, a six- 
teen year old lad, attends a private 
school in the city. He is neither 
able to appreciate his family; nor 
his friends; nor his parents. As the 
Christmas holidays draw near, 
Holden is about to be dismissed 
from school for academic failures. 
Disgruntled and discouraged, he 
leaves school before the holidays 
and spends three days alone in the 
city attempting to find himself. Sal- 
inger escorts us into Holden's mind 
and amid confused agony, trying 
situations, and unusual humor, we 
can see the spring of life — youth. 

This controversial novel has been 
called "trash" — "great". It is evi- 
dent that the mature reader will 
be able to discern between "trash" 
and vivid reality. The author has 
given us an intense picture of the 
age, and in this realm, lies the 
novel's value.

Two Spanish Majors School, Tour 
In Europe During The Past Summer 


Two Northwestern State College 
students schooled and toured in 
Europe this past summer, in con- 
nection with a program sponsored 
by the University of San Francis- 

The students, Rosemary Was- 
son and Dale Duke, both senior 
Spanish majors from Baton Rouge, 
made the trip. 

The affair is a yearly project 
of the California school, and in- 
cludes study in European schools 
and touring of various European 
countries. Rosemary and Duke 
studied at the University of Valin- 
cia at Valjincia, Spain, for five 
weeks, and toured for the remain- 
der of the summer. 

In Spanish 

Studies, they report, were taught 
in Spanish; each received five- 
hours' credit for his work. 

A group of 133 students from 
throughout the United States were 
engaged in this year's program; 
Dale and Rosemary were the only 
southerners to participate The 
group left New York June 28 and 



More Shoes For Less Money 

arrived back to the states Aug. 23. 

Following their five weeks of 
Spanish study, Rosemary went on 
the regularly scheduled Universi- 
ty of San Francisco tour which this 
year included Spain, Portugal and 
South France. Dale toured on his 
own and included Rome, Paris and 

All American students resided 
in homes of various Spanish fami- 
other European capitals in his 
lies while attending the Univer- 
sity of Valincia. According to Miss 
Wasson, this aided the students 
in learning the Spanish language. 


Among personalities met by the 
two was the number-one bullfight- 
er in Europe. The students not 
only met the fighter, Cordobes, 
but watched him perform in the 
popular bullfight arenas of Spain. 

Dale and Rosemary have con- 
structed a special bulletin board 
depicting the phases of their tra- 
vel and the spectacular Spanish 
bullfight, and have placed it on 
display in Caldwel Hall The bulle- 
tin is located in the north end of 
the building, on the second floor.

Welcome Home, Alumni ! 

"Current Sauce" extends a big, harty welcome to Northwestern 

Homecomings, we feel, are always good things. And the 

Natchitoches has grown down through these 250 years — 
this IS the oldest city in the Louisiana Purchase — Northwest- 
ern — the state's oldest four-year college — has kept pace, too, 
during some 80 years, AND the "Current Sauce," during the 
half -century of its life, has grown in size, influence and ability 
so serve. Of these records we are duly proud. 

When you students of yesteryear return to the campus 
for homecoming, remember that this is your college home 
away from home, just as it is to those of us presently enrolled 
here. We want you to maintain a lively interest in the college, 
to support it by your influence back home, and by your pres- 
ence and enthusiasm at homecoming or other occasion when 
you pay us a visit. 

Moreover, we want you to continue to be part and parcel 
of the college community so make suggestions, offer criticism 
(constructive, we hope), and give us and the school the benefit 
of your mature judgement and wise counsel. 

With our youthful energy, the wisdom of our faculty and 
staff, the intelligent leadership of our president and his offic- 
ial family, and the discerning judgement and splendid advice 
you furnish, we shall be able to chalk up such achievements 
in the future as will enable our counterparts of tomorrow to 
observe another progressive span of years when the city, the 
college and the "Sauce" pause to celebrate some anniversary 
in years to come. 

Yea Cheerleaders 

"You can never do more than your duty; 
You should never do less." — Robert E. Lee 

We on the "Current Sauce" staff would like to commend 
one particular group of students for doing work unselfishly 
and for the good of school spirit. This group, which obviously 
believes in the above quotation, has lived up to the election 
promises and is still working hard for the school. 

These are our cheerleaders. 

Team spirit reached a high peak in anticipation of the 
Tech-Northwestern football game last Saturday night, and part 
of the credit goes to the exceptional pepsters we have this 
year. Homecoming is tomorrow and school pride is again being 
boosted by the elected six. 

Head cheerleader Lucy Joiner, with her squad of yellers — 
Jeannie Marler, Carol Allen, Joe Butler, Sam Lucero and John 
Allison — and Demon mascot Art Jones have worked up very 
impressive acrobatic yells for games and pep rallies. 

Thank you cheerleaders for promoting such enthusiasm 
and team spirit! And come on Demons, let's yell for the team 
at that Florence State game! Make it a Homecoming to remem- 
ber for the classes being honored this year. 

Let's show the NSC alumni that their alma mater is one 
to be proud of.

To The 

An In-town Student Speaks 


Current Sauce 
Mr. Editor: 

Hurrah for you! Somebody fin- 
ally had the nerve to speak up 
about the campus security. 

I realize that the campus security 
must have their policies just as 
other departments. However, I won- 
der if the problem of the in-town 
student has ever been called to 
their attention. 

The "In-town Student" is refused 
a room on campus until all other 
students are housed, then they 
are put wherever and with whomev- 
er the dean finds convenient. The 
results are that most of the in- 
town students decide to stay at 
home and carry on a running feud 
with the campus security, climatic 
elements, and time. 

The "In-town Student" never 
knows whether his clock at home 
is synchronized with college time 
and he must leave home at least 
thirty minutes early in order to 
drive around and around and find 
a parking space. Finally, if the bell 
rings he has to park anywhere and 
take the consequences — a yellow 

The solution to the problem 
would probably involve some 
changes in policy; including, giv- 
ing in-town students first choice 
in vehicle permits since they have 
last choice in housing. Also, cer- 
tain of the personnel should real- 
ize their purpose is to serve the 
students and not to feed their egos 
by harassing students. 

An In-town Student 


Dear Sir, 

I would like to take a few 
minutes out of a very busy sched- 
ule to write a few complimentary 
remarks containing no gripes, 
proposals, or recomended amend- 
ments to school policy to salute 
one of our fine professors on what 
I think is a fine venture. 

The man and job in point is Dr. 
Joseph B. Carlucci, head, Dept. of 
Music, NSC, and his presentation 
of the "Concert Hour" a weekly 
program of outstanding classical 
recordings heard Sunday after- 
noons on Radio Station KNOC in 

From what I understand, work's 
from the repitoire heard are from 
Dr. Carlucci' s personal collection, 
which must be quite a magnifi- 
cient one at that. 

The works presented are al- 
ways a varied and versatile rang- 
ing from music of the Baroquian 
genuises such as Ravel or Stravin- 
sky I find it not at all uncommon 
to hear coupled together sudh 
works as, let us say for example, 
Brahm's Fourth symphony and 
Stravinsky's Firebird Suite in a 
given program. In this way listen- 
ers are acquainted with all types 
of compositions and forms from 
the repitoire. Not only is the music 
varied but is also performed by 
artists composing the elite epito-

Ye ole editor and Associate Ed- 
tor Duffy Wall enjoyed the Asso- 
ciated Collegiate Press Convention 
last week in New York City. We 
came home from the convention 

Readers of my column, this week 
you very nearly didn't have my col- 
umn to read. 

This past week at Shreveport, I 
was almost tackeled at the Tech 
game. I was calmly taking pic- 
tures in the sidelines, and I found 
myself involved in the play. 

I'm not the first photographer to 
"mingle"' with the players during 
a game. I'm sure that everyone 
who has ever taken pictures at a 
game has some such experience to 

As everyone around this office 
knows, I have a great admiration 
for the newspaper at Loyola Uni- 
versity in New Orleans. I espec- 
ially admire the editor of the 
"Maroon." A doll by the name of 
Liz Brodrick, she produces some 
real gems in her column, "Editor's 
Notebook." Therefore, without her 
permission, and with all credit 
given, I am reproducing one of her 
journalistic works of art here 

Gripes Code 
It's called the "Code For Gripes". 
"Ground rule number one for bel- 
lowing is when bellowing, we have 
to bellow about something worth 
bellowing about. Or else take our 
troubles to Charles Schultz and 
compete with Lucy for the annual 
Fussbudget award. 

"And when we do have a real 
gripe, (this is ground rule number 
two) we don't go grumbling around 
campus like an old maid with a 
broken rocking chair. We do some- 
thing about it. Like writing a letter 
to the Maroon. Or something. 

And if nothing can be done 
about it, we grit our noble teeth 
and bear it." 

Thank you, Liz. I've got a copy 
of this on my bulletin board and it 
holds meaning for all the gripers 
here at Northwestern. If you have 
any gripes (legitimate) then write 
a letter to the Sauce 

More on the Tech game — We 
may have lost the banner, but our 
queen and her court won a beauty 
contest against those from Tech, in 
my opinion. 

Quote of the week: It doesn't 
make any difference which side 
our bread is buttered on, we eat 
both sides anyway. Grit News- 


with many new ideals relative to 
putting out a newspaper. 

The convention consisted of ses- 
sions in all phases of newspaper 
work led by some of the top journ- 
alist in the eastern part of the 
country. In addition we were able 
to exchange thoughts, views and 
ideals with fellow student editors 
from all over the nation. 

This was the largest, and old 
timers say the finest, ACP conven- 
tion ever held. We certainly think 
it was the most valuable journal- 
ism confab we have ever attended. 

In addition Duf and I took time 
off from the busy convention 
schedule to make a tour of the 
"New York Times." The "Times" 
employes over 3,000 and prints 
three different issues- the New 
York, West Coast and International 
editions. All the news gathered is 
sent to New York and then sent 
out via wire to the West Coast and 
to Paris for the International 

We came home Saturday after- 
noon all cocked and primed (we 
mean FULL of NEWS, and nothing 
else) to tell you that down here in 
the good ole South we grow the 
"purttiest gals in the nation." And 
another thing, it was good to get 
off that plane in Shreveport and 
get a good, deep breath of that 
Louisiana air. 

We're NOT football experts, but 
even we realized that our Demons 
simply could not break up those 
Tech passes Saturday night, hence 
the sound trouncing the Techsters 
administered to us at the annual 
State Fair grudge, grid, game.

In the only previous meeting be 
tween these two clubs, the Lions 
shocked the Demons with an un- 
expected 21-14 win. A 79-yard off- 
tackle jaunt for a T.D. set the 
stage early with Carl Barton mak- 
ing up the first six pointer. The 
Demons resorted to an unsuccess- 
ful air game, trying desperately 
to pull it out in the second half. 
Demon leader was Kenny Thomp- 
son who carried 10 times for 69

The Demons will be heavinly re- 
lying on the services of Glenn Tal- 
bert and Claude Patrick. Talbert 
is the teams' scoring leader with 
18 points while Patrick is the rush- 
ing leader with 208 yards. 

Also going for the Demons will 
be Johnny Ray Norman, G.S.C.

a total of 205 yards. 

The Demons will have to win 
this one if they expect to finish 
above the .500 mark. If they lose 
this one, the best they can finish 
will be an even .500.

Alonzo Stagg Award. This award 
was given to him for his fine per- 
formance in last weeks loss to 
Louisiana Tech. 

This is the second time that 
Odom has received the award as he

American material. Odom was in 
on numerous tackles as he refused 

to be pushed out of the way. His 
fine performance kept the Tech 
score from going higher than it 

On the offensive honor roll this

s~\ r\ r\ n r\ .Q-O/Vl r\ 

Everyone in D e m o n 1 a n d re- 
turned to the campus tired and 
disappointed after the State Fair 
game with the Buldogs from Rus- 
ton. The Demons just couldn't get 
started against the Bulldogs as 
they were unable to get even a 
first down in the the first half. A 
win for the Demons over Tech 
might have been the turning point 
that would have started them roll- 
ing to their second straight G.S.C. 
championship. Now they must win 
all of their remaining games to 
even have a chance for a tie for 
the league lead. They must also 
win all of their remaining games 
for an above .500 season. The way 
things are going now, though, it 
looks like a truly disappointing 

The students are to be commend- 
ed for doing their part as they 
showed great enthusiasm both at 
the pep rally downtown and at the 
game itself. The only thing left 
to say now about Tech is wait til 
next year. 

Football predictions for last 
week came out a little better than 
the first week of action. I was able 
to get eight out of 10 this week for 
an .800 average. This raises the 
total average to .700 with a total of 
14 right and six wrong. Last week 
saw the wrong Tech winning and 
the wrong Tech loosing. Georgia 
Tech was upset by Auburn and 
Louisiana Tech few over North- 

Here's hoping that I improve 
even more this week. 

Florence State (6) over NSC- 
Lions ruin homecoming bid for De- 

Louisiana Tech (20) over Arling- 
ton — Bulldogs snap hard at Rebels 
in hope to raise their national rat- 

Southeastern (7) over North- 
east — Lions growl loud in their 
home stadium. 

Louisiana College (14) over 
Southwestern — Wildcats claw Bull- 
dogs back to Cajun land. 

Alabama (21) over Houston — 
High Tide sweeps over helpless 

Arkansas (24) over Tulsa — Hur- 
ricane breaks up as it hits the 
shores of Arkansas. 

Florida (6) over L.S.U.— Gators 
snap hard at injured Tigers. 

Georgia Tech (14) over Tulane — 
Yellow Jackets will be swarming 
mad over loss to Auburn. 

Ole Miss (25) over Vanderbilt — 
Rebels give Rebel yell to scare 
Commodores back to Nashville. 

Texas (1) over Rice — Longhorns 
too big for Owls. 

Congratulations for this week 
goes out to Demon band and De- 
monettes who put on a fine half 
time exhibition at the State Fair 

Coach Clayton says he was proud 
of the team effort as the films 
showed each of the men were try- 
ing to do their part. 

Some Demon Statistics: First 
Downs, 65; Net Yards Rushing,

Bulldogs Bite Demons For 27-13 Win 

by Rick Woodson 
Sauce Sports Writer 

Sophomore quarterback Billy 
Laird of Louisiana Tech pilfered 
Northwestern State College's de- 
fenses with 23 passes as the Bul- 
dogs defeated the Demons 27-13 
in the annual battle Saturday 
night at State Fair Stadium in 

Laird was sensational in rolling 
up 232 yards via the airways as 
NSC could not find the key to 
stopping his phenomenal throw- 
ing. He missed only seven times 
in 30 atempts. 

Northwestern's slate fell to one 
win and four losses, while Tech 
boosted its record to 3-1. Both 
teams have won once and lost 
once in Gulf States Conference 

In a Hole 

The Demons kept themselves in 
a hole throughout the first half, 
and did not manage a first down in 
the first 30 minutes, as Tech rolled 
up a 14-0 halftime advantage. 

The Buldogs opened the scoring 
in the first period when Kenny 
Tidwell intercepted a Donald Beas- 
ley pass at the Demon 44. As he 
was tackled, he lateraled to Alden 
Reeves who went down to the De- 
mon 26 before he was stopped. 
Two running plays got four yards, 
and then Laird hit on two aerials, 
one to Jack Odom and a nine-yard- 
er to Charles Bourgeois to the De- 
mon 10. 

Two plays later Odom went up 
the middle for eight down to the 
NSC one. Fullback Gerald McDow- 
ell cracked into the end zone from 
there and C. T. Campbell got the 
point after. 

In the Second 

Tech threatened early in the se- 
cond stanza when they drove to 
the Demon one and on fourth 
down Odom was stopped cold and 
the Demons got the ball again deep 
in their own territory. 

On third down Wayne Walker 
pounded a 50 yard punt to the Tech 
46 with only 50 seconds left in the 
half. Tidwell took the kick and 
raced back to the NSC 32, where 

DENNIS DUNCAN (25) sweeps around right end as 
Wayne Mathews (62) and Kenny Tidwell (21) move in for 
the kill in the Northwestern-Tech game Saturday night. 

Laird immediately flipped to half- 
back Corky Corkern for nine yards. 

The 170 pound signal caller then 
ran for four yards, and from the 
19 fired a strike to Corkern again, 
this time for the touchdown. Camp- 
bell again toed the point, and the 
Techsters led by 14-0. 

NSC took a Tech punt after the 
second half kickoff and got its 
first TD. Beasley lofted a pass to 
Kenneth Hood for 47 yards and a 
first and goal at the Bulldog two. 
The fullback got to the one, and 
halfback Dennis Duncan got the 
touchdown on the next play. Ed 
Horton converted to bring the De- 
mons within one TD at 14-7. 

Six of Seven 

Laird threw seven straight pass- 

eses following the kickoff, and con- 
nected on six of them to put the 
ball on the Demon five. McDowell 
carried for three in a row and got 
the TD from the one on the third 
try. Campbell's kick was accurate 
and NSC trailed by a 21-7 score 
with 5:43 remaining in the third 

NSC came right back to the Bull- 
dog six, but lost the ball for lack 
of downs, and Tech started to roll 

NSC scored its second TD when 
the Demons recovered a Bulldog 
fumble at the enemy 19. After Hor- 
ton picked up two to the 17 
Donnie Carroll passed to Dick 
Reding for the six-pointer. Horton's 
PAT attempt was no good, and the 
scoring was over for the night.

HOMECOMING is a word that suggests 
the very best of good human relations. May 
all students, faculty members and others work 
and play to make this year's gathering around 
the College hearth one to be remembered for 
many years in the future. 

Even though our first interest and obliga- 
tion is to our alumni, let all of us here on the 
Hill see much of one another through the 
courtesies that we extend to parents and other 
relatives and friends.

Many Interesting Styles This Season 
For College Men And Women To Wear 

by Janice Freeman 
Society Editor 

Most college men and women 
have problems of planning that 
certain wardrobe for big occasions. 
Well, this weekend is no exception. 
After the big State Fair weekend 
some co-eds may be worried as to 
what to wear for the Homecoming 
festivities. Our college men, as well 
as our co-eds, have this problem. 
Really, after seeing "some" of the 
fashinos of our college students 
this past weekend, many need to 
be complimented; yet, we have a 
few that still are worried if they 
were dressed properly for the oc- 

There are many interesting

styles around this season. Although 
many schools have certain fads and 
fashions all of their own, including 
Northwestern State College, we 
still need to maintain that person- 
al, well groomed look and the prop- 
er attire for the occasion. 


To start our weekend off, the 
Homecoming parade should view 
students decked out in the tradi- 
tional college frocks. Girls may de- 
sire to wear their favorite dark 
cotton or that new crisp white 
blouse with her new jumper shifts- 
no slacks. Young men on campus 
could be seen in regular college 
attire of button-down shirts or the 
NSC sweat shirts and slacks that 
are slim, yet not the tight variety. 

For the all important game, co- 
eds should choose a sport jacket- 
suit, the neat two-piece suede pull- 
over and skirt worn with a lovely 
silk or whip cream blouse. College 
men may choose the most popular 
fall suits which are cut in the

Well, we lost the game, but com-

spirit over the State Fair weekend. 
Many displayed banners of "Wreck

leading the crowd in cheering at 
the parade and some just tried to 
keep up their own spirits and did- 
n't look too worried about NSC. 

But, at last the big Homecoming 
week is here. The last hours work

For this lovely evening young

or a simple crepe, rayon or bro- 
cade frock. All evening wear is 
never complete without its match- 
ing accessories. The best dancing 
footnote is the low-heel pumps 
which are a must at all college 
homecomings this year. 

Girls, you may wear a plain 
sparkling bracelet and ear bobs to 
complete your ensemble. College 
men can relax, for they don't have 
the problem of deciding what to 
wear for their all important date. 
The smart looking suit or sport 
coat and slacks is a simple answer 
for the men, worn with the popular 
white or pin stripe dress shirt and 
your favorite matching tie.

Sigma Kappa 

The Sigma K's are really on the 
ball. Every night this week was 
spent in preparations for the an- 
nual homecoming festivities. Delta 
Mu Chapter of Sigma Kappa is 
looking forward to their open house 
which is to follow the football 
game. Pledges are also looking for- 
ward to their complete day of acti- 
vities since this is their first as a 
Sigma Kappa. 

For tiie past .few weeks the new 
pledges have received small pre- 
sents and notes from their secret 
Big Sisters. On Saturday the identi- 
ty of the Big Sisters will be reveal- 
ed in a special ceremony held at 
the slumber party following the 
Homecoming Dance. 

On Oct. 4, the chapter visited the 
Natchitoches Nursing Home. While 
there the Sigma Kappa's enter- 
tained members of the nursing 
home by playing dominoes and 
cards with them. Last Wednesday 
the girls held their monthly birth- 
day party at the Nursing Home in 
honor of those celebrating birth- 
day's this month. Games were 
played and all enjoyed eating some 
of the beautiful decorated birthday 
cake which was presented to Miss 
Julie Poet, who celebrated her 82nd 
birthday, and Richard Hawkins, 
who celebrated his 83rd birthday. 

The Natchitoches Nursing Home 
is the main gerontology project of 
Delta Mu chapter. The gerontology 
work is one phase of National Sig- 
ma Kappa program to help and aid 
elders. At the present time Delta 
Mu Chapter is collecting money and 
clothing for their Maine Sea Coast 
Mission, which is the main mission 
project of Sigma Kappa. 

Sigma Kappa would like to wel- 
come Miss Linda Worrell, fresh- 
man nursing major from Alexan- 
dria, into their bond of sisterhood. 
Miss Worrell was pledged a sister 
of SK on Oct. 2.

On Campus 

(Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys' 
and "Barefoot Boy With Cheek".) 



Today let us address ourselves to a question that has long rocked 
and roiled the academic world : Is a student better off at a small 
college than at a large college? 

To answer this question it is necessary first to define terms. 
What, exactly, do we mean by a small college? Well sir, some 
say that in order to be called truly small, a college should have 
an enrollment of not more than four students. 

I surely have no quarrel with this statement; a four-student 
college must unequivocally be called small. Indeed, I would 
even call it intime if I knew what ittiime meant. But I submit 
there is such a thing as being too small. Take, for instance, a 
recent unfortunate event at Crimscott A and M. 

Crimscott A and M, situated in a pleasant valley nestled 
between Philadelphia and Salt Lake City, was founded by 

W.&^fe do ye mm Vtd <M[ tillese? 

A. and M. Crimscott, two brothers who left Ireland in 1625 
to escape the potato famine of 1841. As a result of their fore- 
sight, the Crimscott brothers never went without potatoes for 
one single day of their lives— and mighty grateful they were! 
One night, full of gratitude after a wholesome meal of French 
fries, cottage fries, hash browns, and au gratin, they decided 
to show their appreciation to this bountiful land of potatoes 
by endowing a college. But their generosity contained one 
stipulation: the enrollment of the college must never exceed 
four students. They felt that only by keeping the school this 
small could each student be assured of the personalized atten- 
tion, the camaraderie, the esprit, that is all too often lacking in 
larger institutions of higher learning. 

Well sir, things went along swimmingly until one Saturday 
a few years ago. On this day Crimscott had a football game 
scheduled against Minnesota, its traditional rival. Football, 
as you can well imagine, was something of a problem at Crim- 
scott, what with only four undergraduates in the entire college. 
It was easy enough to muster a backfield, but to find a good 
line— or even a bad line— baffled some of the most resourceful 
coaching minds in the nation. 

Well sir, on the morning of the big game against Minnesota, 
its traditional rival, a capricious fate dealt Crimscott a cruel 
blow— in fact, four cruel blows. Sigafoos, the quarterback, 
woke up that morning with an impacted incisor. Wrichards, 
the slotback, flunked his taxidermy exam and was declared in- 
eligible. Beerbohm-Tree, the wingback-tailback, got his neck- 
tie caught in his espresso machine. Yuld, the fullback, was 
stolen by gypsies. 

Consequently, none of the Crimscott team showed up at the 
football game, and Minnesota, its traditional rival, was able to 
score almost at will. Crimscott was so cross after this humiliating 
defeat that they immediately broke off football relations with 
Minnesota, its tradtional rival. This later became known as 
the Sacco-Vanzetti Case. 

So you can see how only four students might be too meagre 
an enrollment. The number that I personally favor is twenty. 
Why? you ask. Because, I reply, when you have twenty 
students and one of them opens a pack of Marlboro Cigarettes, 
there are enough to go around for everybody, and no one has 
to be deprived of Marlboro's flavor, of Marlboro's filter, of 
Marlboro's staunch and steadfast companionship, and as a 
result you have a student body that is brimming with sweet 
content and amity and harmony and concord and togetherness 
and soft pack and Flip-Top box. 

That's why. © 1983 Mm shoiM, 

There are twenty fine cigarettes in every pack of Marlboro*, 

and there are millions of packs of Marlboros in every one of 
the fifty states of the Union. We, the makers of Marlboro and 

the sponsor* of this co'umn, hope you will I, uut wares soon.

Review Of College Production Given 

by Sonny Carter 

"My Sister Eileen" by Joseph A. 
Fields and Jerome Chodorov 
based on stories by Ruth Mc- 
Kenny. Directed by Edna West. 
NSC College Theatre production 
on Oct. 16 and 17. 

What happens when two girls 
attempt to launch careers in wri- 
from Ohio move to New York to 
ting and on the stage-only to find 
that the previous occupant of their 
apartment was a striper? 

The play "My Sister Eileen" tells 
this story in three acts of halarious 

Ruth and Eileen Sherwood 
(Margaret Montgomery and Sherry 
Boucher) take an apartment in 
Greenwich Village, or rather, are 
taken by their landlord, Mr. Appo- 
polous (Nick Pollacia, Jr.). 

Appopolous tells the girls "life 
passes in front of this window,"and 
they find that life passes through 
their very apartment-due to a faul- 
tydoor lock, and a shade-less win- 


They find that many of their 
problems are caused by the prev- 
ious occupant's occupation, includ- 
ing a visiting fireman (Paul 
Grant) who won't beleive he's got 
the wrong address.untill he is dis- 
posed of by a brawny Georgia 
Peach by the name of Wreck 
(Robert Graham). 

Due to in-law troubles, the 
Wrtck moves into their kitchen 
and pays his keep by doing the 

Chick Clark, (Warren Ward) an 
uncouth reporter sendsRuth out to 
cover a story on the Brazilian Navy 
in order to get Eileen alone. 

The handyman (Jim Mambourg) 
disposes of him, and Ruthreturns 
with the Brazilian Navy in hot 
pursuit The act disrupts into the 
chaos of the conga, and an inci- 
dent wlith international repur- 
cussions ensues. 

The play is funny, and the cast- 
ing is excellent.

34 Students Tour 
Paper Mill Monday 

Thirty-four industrial education 
students at Northwestern State Col- 
lege and two faculty members 
toured the paper mill and bag 
making plant of Continental Can 
Company at Hodge Monday. Mak- 
ing the trip were members of I.E. 
110 and I.E. Ill and the instructors 
of these classes, Charles Wommack 
and Tommy Dunagan. 

At the plant the group saw kraft 
paper being made from wood pulp. 
At full capacity the four paper- 
making machines operated by the 
company can produce 600 ton of 
paper per day. The plant also has 
facilities to make over 25,000,000 
bags daily of various kinds, grades 
and sizes. Many of these are print- 
ed in one, two, or three colors on 
modern high-speed presses. 


After the tour was completed 
the group was brought together in 
a conference room where represen- 
tatives of various areas of the 
plant answered questions posed by 
the visitors concerning the entire 
operation. Several technical pro- 
cesses involved in papermaking 
were explained. It was also brought 
out that the plant employs ap- 
proximately 1,600 persons and that 
the plant payroll is an important 
factor in the economic welfare of 
that area of Jackson Parish.

floats was better. It seems that 
more work went into preparation 
this year, and the parade, as a 
whole, was quite a success."

Mom and Dad Day, an annual 
event at Northwestern State Col- 
lege which is centered around par- 
ents of college students, is sched- 
uled for Saturday. 

The Associated Women Students 
are in charge of the day's activi- 
ties, which will begin at 2 p.m. 
with a reception in Varnado Hall. 
This is planned as a time for moms 
and dads to get acquainted with 
each other, college officials, and 
possibly to renew acquaintances 
with their Northwestern students. 

Also from 2-5 p.m., each dormi- 
tory will be open for inspection by 
moms, dads and other interested 
parties. Coffee will be served in 
the dorm living rooms, and parents 
will be given the opportunity to 
meet officers of the dormitories 
and to meet house mothers. Bulle- 
tin board displays will show moms 
and dads that they are "welcome!" 

Water Show 

Another event planned for the 
day is a special water show to be 
presented by the Neptune Club at 
3 p.m. The program will include 
syncronized swimming exhibition, 
and should offer enjoyment for 
students and their guests, and 
might serve to show that North- 
western's extra curricular activi- 
ties are very much worthwhile. 

As usual, the highlight of the 
day will be the football game, which 
will get underway at 8 p.m. in De- 
mon Stadium when Northwestern 
meets Appalachian (North Caro- 
lina) State. Moms and dads will be 
admitted free with Northwestern's 

Officers of the AWS in charge 
of the annual affair, are: Barbara 
Martin, president; Irby McCan, 
vice-president; Linda Nadrshal, 
IAWS representative; Patsy Slay, 
recording secretary; Becky Alphin, 
corresponding secretary; Kate Thi- 
bodeaux, treasurer; Anne Ruther- 
ford, social chairman; and Bettye 
Lilley, publicity chairman. 

Hootenanny Set 
Tonight At 6:30 

A hootenanny will be held to- 
night beginning at 6:30 p.m. It 
will start in the Little Theatre, and 
the first portion will be broadcast 
over the Voice of Northwestern 
(KNOC Radio) from 6:30-7 p.m., 
according to Mrs. Genie Quinn, 
assistant to the dean of women. 
The Radio Club, under the direct- 
ion of Dr. Edna West, is sponsor- 
ing the radio show. 

The gathering will then move to 
the Student Union for the rest of 
the session. Girls will be permitted 
to wear slacks or skirts and the 
singing will be held in a very in- 
formal manner. The Student Union 
Cafeteria will be open during the 

Featured on tonight's program 
will be Jerry, Don and Jerry Trio. 
Making up this trio is Jerry Mc- 
Crary and Don and Jerry Elkens. 
This trio will feature Hazel Ber- 
nard. Several other entertainers 
will appear on the program. Susan 
Wall is in charge of arranging 
singers for the program. 

"This is just one of the ways we 
are trying to provide entertain- 
ment for students on weekends," 
Mrs. Quinn said.

Disgraceful Incident 

October 20, 1963 

Dear Editor: 

We had the grave misfortune to 
graceful incident tonight (Sunday) 
in Bienville Dining Hall. When 
rules are so lax that drunkards can 
come in the dining hall and sit at 
the table next to you the time for 
reform has arrived. We feel that 
it is a primary duty for football

players to set an example for other 
students and maintain a good rep- 
utation for the school. If they can't 
do this on campus-- as they showed 
they couldn't by their performance 
tonight-- then how can they be ex- 
pected to do so off campus? We do 
not mean to say that all the foot- 
ball players come under this cata- 
gory but the rotten apples surely 
are rotten. 

People wonder where the school 
spirit has gone— where else but to 
some of the football player's stom- 
achs. These few can gain the re- 
spect they think they should get 
only if they earn it. 

We feel that this is a three-fold 
offense: First of all, the persons 
concerned are NSC students who 
should have more respect for their 
school as well as for themselves; 
secondly, they are football players 
who are supposed to be in strict 
training; and thirdly, if a girl came 
on this campus even showing the 
the least sign of intoxication, grave 
consequences would result. 

Also profanity in public especial- 
ly across the dinner table is never 
pleasant— the meals are quite "de- 
licious" enough without this added 

We ask that this letter be print- 
ed because we feel that this should 
be brought to the attention of the 
students, faculty, and staff of NSC. 
Because of the consequences which 
might occur we wish to remain 

"The Germans" 

There can be much debate as to 
how students should dress while 
attending class and to a certain 
extent, the type of clothing to be 
worn to our football games. But, 
when we as students have the 
opportunity to hear fine perform- 
ances such as the Dallas Symphony 
Orchestra and a few in our stu- 
dent body find it necessary to at- 
tend such events in "cut-off blue 
jeans, with the pockets torn off," 
then we as students need to take 
a stand. Where is our pride? What 
has happened to our standards? 

It is our responsibility to "Dress 
Right." When Dean Nichols or 
Dean Hendricks has to call it to 
our attention that our manner of 
dress is not up to par, it is a direct 
reflection upon our whole student 
body, not just those that dress 

You can help correct the impres- 
sion that has already been made 
by using a little pride in what you 
wear and where you wear it. If we 
can accomplish this small task, we 
will better our school, our student 
body, and ourselves as a whole. 

Sincerely yours,

College Dress Discussed 

Dear Fellow Students: 

For the past few months, the

We are college men and women 
and should dress as such.

VIP Offended 

Dear Editor: 

It's happened again. The NSC 
switchboard operator has offended 
still another VIP. During last Sat- 
urday's Homecoming activities, this 
rude operator told a member of the 
Alumni Association that she didn't 
have time to help him locate a 
party he needed. 

It wasn't the first time she has 
shown downright rudeness. 

Does NSC have to keep the most 
dispicable people in town supplied 
with jobs? Or does the term "good 
public relations" mean nothing to 
those who do the hiring?

"This was their finest hour." This 
phrase could also apply to the Bull- 
dog football team, coaching staff, 
cheerleaders, band, student body, 
and all others who helped to make 
last Saturday such a great day in 
the history of Louisiana Tech. The 
splendid victory over Northwest- 
ern, the fine performance of the 
band, the almost tireless efforts of 
the cheerleaders, and the conduct 
of our students while in Shreveport 
made me very proud. 

Reports in the Shreveport Times 
notwithstanding, most people know 
that the Tech students were massed 
on the Texas Street side of the 
courthouse and not the Milam 
Street side which was the scene of 
so many difficulties and embarrass- 
ment. The image left in the minds 
of the people of Shreveport by our 
students can bring nothing but 
credit to our college. 

And to the football team and 
coaches — ■ hearty congratulations; 
you made the supreme effort and 
we are grateful.

ment. With all due respect to every- 
body concerned, we wish to say 
that NSC has come to be known as 
an institution with a Political 
Sporting System. NSC has lost and 
will continue to lose excellent ma- 
terial because of the name the col- 
lege has earned throughout the 
country. There are many splendid 
boys from this section and sur- 
rounding areas who will not enter 
NSC to engage in any sport be- 
cause of our reputation. 

This is not harping — but is meant 
to be constructive — criticism. It is 
not our intent to discredit anybody. 
We hope to start some revolution 
that bids fair to bring pride back 
to the name DEMONS!

With Due Respect 

Dear Editor, 

With all deserved respect to the 
administration, we the students of 
Northwestern State College wish 
to express our views on several 
matters concerning our college. 

It has come to the attention of 
most students that the spirit of our 
school has subsided considerably. 
Has this been the fault of the stu- 
dent body or has it been the neglect 
of our administration? We feel it 
is through the neglect of our col- 
lege heads. 

Most college students assume 
that the school which he attends 
will be governed by a student coun- 
cil duly elected by the student 
body. Is this true here? Each year 
we go through the motion of elect- 
ing officers to be the voice of the 
student with our administration. 
Is it worth the trouble to elect 
good officials? On this campus this 
seems not to be so. Our student 
council is very capable of carrying 
our voice to our administration but 
their voices seem not to be heard. 

It was at one time a distinction 
to be a Freshman on the campus of 
NSC. This importance has waned 
of recent years. No longer do you 
see the head — shavened dog — strut 
across campus. No longer do you 
see the Freshman girl wearing her 
traditional pigtails and shabby 
dress. What has happened that they 
have disappeared from our college 
campus? Did we, the Student Body, 
vote it out or did our administra 
tion KILL our spirit and pride in 
being an NSC student? Our pride 
and spirit come from such tradi 
tions. The name upper classman 
carries a distinction all its own 
One must pay the price to belong. 
This is pride in belonging and 
spirit in achieving. 

Here is another pertinent topic! 
We mean our Athletic Depart- 

A Third View 

Dear Sir: 

In Mr. Gimbert's review of 
"Catcher in the Rye," the state- 
ment that Holden "is neither able 
to appreciate his family; nor his 
friends; nor his parents," lies the 
key to the understanding of Salin- 
ger's theme and the essential 
beauty of "Catcher." 

Why doesn't Holden appreciate 
these things? He tells us, again 
and again, that these people are 
"phonies." Phonies disgust Holden. 
The only people in the book who 
are not phony in Holden's estima- 
tion are the children and a group 
of nuns he meets in a bus terminal. 
The reason the children and nuns 
are not phony is because they re- 
tain their innocence. 

Everyone else lies, or cheats, or 
takes advantage of those around 
them. And, by this very process, 
destroy the purity of those still 
innocent. It is purity and innocence 
that Holden believes should be 

Even the title of the book (and 
almost every other symbol) sup- 
ports this interpretation. Holden 
tells us of his recurring dream in 
which dozens of children are run- 
ning and playing in a huge field 
of rye. But at one end of the field 
is a cliff. This cliff presents a real 
danger to the children, for they 
might run off the edge and injure 
themselves in the resulting fall. 
It is Holden's job to stop them be- 
fore they fall off the cliff. If you 
look at this fall as the loss of in- 
nocence, then you will see that it 
is a very important, and beautiful 
thing to be a "Catcher in the Rye."

Different Views Stimulate Thinking 

It is our firm conviction that the "Sauce" should be to our 
students here at Northwestern as the favorite newspaper is 
with the average family. What we're trying to say is that the 
"Sauce" ought to present its own views, alongside those of 
persons with different ideas, and then let you, the readers 
peruse, ingest, and make up your own minds. 

We hold that the principle mission of a newspaper in the 
present-day sense of the word, is to cover a happening or event 
in depth. Background and foreground are vitally necessary. 
Even interpretation, which is another way of saying opinion, 
often gives the reader clearer insight into the whole matter — 
enables him to read and understand that which is presented 
in the columns of the paper. 

Thus it can be seen that we are not trying so much to per- 
suade our readers to form opinions like ours, as we are striving 
to give them information, facts and data, which will enable 
them to make up their minds — have an opinion, whether it is 
the same as ours or not. 

This being so, there will be times when you may en- 
counter stories, features and columns which reflect opinions 
with which the editor, the staff, or the "Sauce" as a whole, 
disagree. The mere publication of such items does not imply 
our endorsement. What is does denote is our willingness, yea 
our anxiousness, to present both sides of a question, to the 
end that you may have the wherewithal to form your own 

In the abstract this is our goal. If we fall short at times, 
remember we are but human, and to err is an attribute of 
every member of the species homo sapiens. 

To It We Add Our "Amen!" 

The following editorial appeared in a recent issue of the 
"Pow Wow" of Northeast Louisiana State College. 
To it, we add our "Amen!" 

"Oftentimes students scream for more responsibility and 
complain that faculty and staff advisors run the campus or- 
ganizations. Why do these students gripe? They do nothing 
about it when given responsibility. 

"How many campus committees really get down to work 
and do the job that they are expected to do? Very few. When 
the majority of the students are told it is time to go to work, 
they decide that it is really time to go home. This lazy attitude 
often results in a lack of planning for many major events that 
should be planned to the smallest detail. 

"When faculty advisors see that the students are going to 
neglect their responsibility when it is given them, they decide 
that if the job is to be done they must do it themselves. Really 
it is the students' own fault that they have little responsibility. 

"Even the elected officials on campus seem to want to 
leave it to others to do the work that should rightly be theirs. 
These are the people that students have named as their leaders. 
They should act like leaders, and not puppets. The advisors 
will have little strings operating the students as long as the 
students will permit it. When, and only when, they see that 
there are strings tied to them and take action to break the 
strings, we will have true student leaders. 

"Students must realize that they are not going to be given 
leadership on a platter, they are going to have to work for it 
and use it when it is finally given. 

"So students, if you are on a committee, serve on that 
committee. Don't let it serve you."

Facts, Views, Opinions

The Dead Sea Scrolls 

In 1945, secret caves containing 
the ancient library of the now de- 
funct Essene sect were discovered 
by Bedouin nomads in the hills sur- 
rounding the Dead Sea. Since the 
discovery of the "Dead Sea Scrolls," 
enough of the rolled leather and 
copper cylinders and the tens of 
thousands of fragments of hundreds 
of manuscripts, have been deci- 
phered and translated for scholars 
to know, even if John Doe does 
not, that the mother of Christian- 
ity was a communistic society re- 
ferred to as the Essene sect or 
Qumran monastics. 

The Essenes and their scrolls 
are important because of their con- 
siderable affront to the basic be- 
liefs of Christian dogma. Some en- 
thusiasm at the discovery of the 
scrolls quickly cooled when it was 
learned that many of them, dating 
a century before Jesus, contained 
sayings that they had thought orig- 
inal with him. 

The ideas, teachings, proverbs, 
prayers and even the beautiful 
sentences in Jesus' Sermon on the 
Mount were written in the Essene 
scrolls at least a full century be- 
fore Jesus ever spoke them. This 
is not surprising in view of the 
fact that the Essenes were a flour- 
ishing and well known Jewish sect 
whose headquarters (assumed by 
scholars to be the ruins of a mon- 
astery near the Qumran caves) 
were on the Dead Sea no more than 
fifteen miles from Jerusalem. 

An Essene Ritual 

Because little is known of Jesus 
between the ages of 12 and 30, it 
is conceivable that he lived or 
studied with them for awhile. 
Jesus' last meal with his disciples 
resembled more an Essene ritual 
than it did a Passover. At his last 
meal, Jesus raised the "cup of the 


What do you do when you run 
out of ideas for your column? This 
is a question that several students 
have asked me. 

The truth of the matter is that 
I've never had the problem. I 
usually have the idea outlined in 
my feeble cranial cavity long be- 
fore the ominous Monday deadline 
rolls around. 

This week was the exception. I 
had no idea what the subject of the 
column was going to be until I had 
it half written last Sunday night. 
I had just sat around on my glu- 
teus maximus the entire week and 
hadn't accomplished anything of 


I conducted a survey the other 
day, and found that aside from 
getting to polish an occassional 
upperclassman's shoes, or sing 
songs from the music 30-B book, 
the dogs have it pretty easy this 
year. In fact, the majority of them 
can't spell. Most of them spell Phy- 
deaux "Fido." 

What can be done about it? Tra- 
dition should be restored. For this 
purpose, I have organized the 
S.F.T.E.O.D.A.R.O.T.F.H. This is 
the Society for the Education of 
Dogs And The Restoration of 
Freshmen Hair-cuts. 

Normally, I wouldn't harp on a 
subject to long, but this problem 
has affected our school sprit. 

Freshmen have no sense of be- 
longing, and at pep rallies, they 
look like a group of morticians. 

Administration, I direct this to 
you. Your "noble experiment" has 
failed. Admit it and restore tra- 
dition for the sake of our college 

The information for the week is: 
Do not confuse the Aardvark with 
the common anteater. The Aard- 
vark is a native of Africa, and the

"The Optimist," publication of 
Abilene, Texas Christian College 
called the Demons "cajuns" in a 
story concerning the NSC-Abilene 
game. The NSC boys have been 
called a lot of things lately, but 
this is probably the first time 
they've been called cajuns. 

Comment overheard in the Stu- 
dent Center: "There is more noise 
in the Library on any given day 
of the week than there was in De- 
mon Stadium during the Home- 
coming game." The speaker of 
these words was, of course, an 
erudit scholar. 

New Covenant." The Essenes called 
themselves the "community of the 
New Covenant" which can also 
stand for "community of the New 
Testament" in the Aramaic lang- 

The Essenes, the primitive Christ- 
ian Church, and Jesus were all 
communistic. In each case, Jesus 
with his disciples, the Essenes, and 
the early Christians, pooled the re- 
sources of the individual into a 
public fund for the common good. 

Baptism was a doctrine of the 
Essenes long before John the Bap- 
tist got his feet wet. When John 
the Baptist said that he was the 
". . .voice of one crying in the 
wilderness, Prepare ye the way of 
the Lord, make his paths straight," 
he was quoting from Essene scrip- 
tures. The phrase ". . .to fulfill all 
righteousness. . ." is again a quote 
from Essenian scripture. 

Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, 
Islam — all the high religions — exalt 
the same principals, love and bro- 
therhood as the good path for both 
the individual and society. Surely 
the same God is wherever men 
have found him and find him still. 
If we would accept more of truth 
and fact (as we find them), possi- 
bly we would break down at least 
some of the barriers that wall us 
in from each other. 


Peter, Paul, and Mary: "In The 
Wind." Warner Bros. W1507, Mono- 

There is a certain quality that 
sets the great performers and songs 
apart from the mediocre. This is 
the ability to make even the least 
talented clod believe he can sing. 
Peter, Paul, and Mary have this 
ability, and exhibit it in their new 
album, "In The Wind." 

Even if one doesn't know the 
words, he finds himself humming, 
whistling, clapping, stamping and/ 
or twisting about midway through 
each song. All 12 selections have 
this ability. P, P, & M's ability to 
make each song sound as if it is 
supposed to be sung in just that 
manner has made them the great- 
est of the "pseudo-folksingers." 

No matter what type of folksong 
one enjoys, he will find it in "In 
The Wind;" from the fast- moving 
social protest spiritual, "Very Last 
Day," to "Hush-A-Bye," a beautiful 
lullaby. In the "Puff" vain, they do 
"Stewball," a ballad about an al- 
coholic racehorse. Four new songs 
by two simi-authentics, Jimmy 
Driftwood ("Long Chain On") and 
Bob Dylan ("Don't Think Twice, 
It's All Right," "Quit Your Low- 
down Ways," and "Blowin' In The 
Wind"), are very powerful and 
moving social protest comments. 
Five more songs with the same 
grace and beauty that has endured 
P, P, & M to the folkmusic public 
make the album complete. 

Almost everyone, but the most 
authenic-loving "pureist" will gain 
many hours of folk-musical enjoy- 
ment from "In The Wind."

They say, and we agree, that the 
most charming coed in Saturday's 
parade was Miss Current Sauce, 
Sue Burgdorf. 

Did you know that William J. 
Dodd, who is now running for 
state Superintendent of Education, 
was once a student at ole NSC, 
Yep, and served as sports editor 
of the "Sauce" while here too. 

He was quite a man about cam- 
pus, we hear. Played football and 
baseball, was a member of the de- 
bate team, on the student council 
and even edited the "Potpourri" 

As usual Chief of Campus Se- 
curity James K. Lee was on the 
ball. When the parade started!, 
Chief Lee was on campus getting 
it off to a right start. And by 
golly, when the parade got down- 
town, Chief Lee was there, too. 

Old "Sauce" staffers returning 
for a visit Saturday included O. 
P. Babin (editor in 1913), LaNae 
Rowell (editor 1961-62), Bill Long 
(sports editor 1961-62) and Wayne 
Summers (editor 1962-63).

Demons Make Fine Offensive Showing 
As They Beat Florence State 33-14 

by Rick Woodson 
Sauce Sports Writer 

Northwestern State's Demons e- 
rupted for their finest offensive 
showing of the season before a 
Homecoming crowd of 7,000 and 
soundly drubbed Florence (Ala.) 
State 33-14 last Saturday after- 

The Demons scored on the third 
play of the game and were never 
headed in chalking up victory num- 
ber two with four losses. 

NSC rolled up a whopping 486 
yards total offense — 330 on the 
ground and 156 through the air, 
and held the visiting Lions to 63 
rushing and 89 passing. 

Glenn Talbert got things under- 
way in a hurry as the fleet half-

Smith Inscribes 
Name As Starter 

Jackie Smith, a 1963 graduate 
of Northwestern State College and 
a rookie in the National Football 
League, inscribed his name in the 
St. Louis Football Cardinals re- 
cord book in his third game as a 
pro starter. 

Smith, playing a tight end po- 
sition, has shown plenty of speed, 
hustle, and desire along with his 
great pass-catching ability. 

Jackie started his first pro game 
against the Pittsburg Steelers, 
and since then he has faced the 
Minnesota Vikings and the Steelers 
again. It was in his second game 
against the Steelers that he put on 
his sparkling performance. 

Smith was on the receiving end 
of nine passes for a total of 212 
yards and twio touchdowns. The 
212 yards represent the second 
greatest one-game total by a Card- 
inal receiver. 

One of the T.D. passes was a 55 
yarder in the final moments to 
help St Louis come from behind 
to win the ballgame. The other T. 
D.pass was a 10 yarder from John 
David Crow. The pass was intended 
for another reciever but was de- 
flected by a Steeler defensive back. 
Smith made a diving catch to 

and a touchdown. Ed Horton boot- 
ed the point after and NSC led 
7-0 with only 1:15 gone in the 

Florence ran only one play from 
scrimmage and the Demons were 
off and running again. Al Dodd in- 
tercepted Doyle Hill's pass at his 
own 28, and fullback Bobby Parker 
promptly went for 29 yards to the 
Lion 41. Halfback Jerry Burton 
then carried four straight times to 
move the ball down to the 23. 

Burton Score TD 

The drive almost stalled, but 
Donald Beasley completed a pass 
to Talbert at the nine and Parker 
got the first down at the six. Bur- 
ton scored the TD two plays later 
from the one, and Horton again 
converted to put the Demons on 
top by 14-0. 

The Lions got their first score 
when Donnie Carroll fumbled at 
the nine following a punt and Les- 
ter Dawson recovered. Lewis Dyer 
went the final yard through the 
middle, and a attempted pass for 
a two point conversion was no 
good. The first quarter ended 14-6, 
Demons in front. 

NSC took the ensuing kickoff 
and moved 63 yards in 10 plays for 
another score. The big play in the 
drive was a pass from Beasley to 
halfback James Aymond good for 
23 yards. Parker cracked the line 
from the one for the tally. Horton 
missed the kick, and it was Demons 
by 20-6. 

Florence failed to generate a 
drive and following an exchange 
of punts the Demons took over on 
their own 29. NSC could not move 

on the ground and with a third and 
six situation Beasley and Talbert 
hooked up on a 66 yard scoring 
pass. Horton kicked the PAT and 
the Demons led 27-6 at the half. 

TD By Lions 

The only scoring in the third 
period was a TD by the Lions. The 
visitors took the opening kickoff 
and had a pass intercepted to stop 
a drive. But Beasley fumbled to 
give the ball right back, and this 
time FS went all the way for the 
score. An 18 yard jaunt by Hill and 
a five yard penalty against the De- 
mons aided the Lions, and Dyer 
scored from the one with 10:45 
remaining in the third quarter. A 
pass was good for two points and 
Florence had done its scoring for 
the night. 

NSC marched 91 yards following 
a Lion punt for the last touchdown. 
The Demons methodically ate up 
yardage on the ground, and did not 
throw a pass until Beasley rifled 
a strike to end Roy Gentry for the 
final 33 yards and the TD. Horton 
missed the kick and NSC had won 
for the alumni. 

Leading the Demon attack was 
Mack Thomas with 70 yards, one 
a 65 yard scamper, and Parker with 
68 yards. Beasley hit on four pass- 
es to pace NSC in that department. 
NSC had 18 first downs to only 
eight for the visitors.

The Northwestern State College 
Demons will play host to the 
Appalachian State Mountaineers 
here in a non-conference tilt Satur- 
day night with kickoff time slated 
for 8 p.m. 

The Mountaineers boast a fine 
season record of five wins and two 
losses compared to the Demons' 
two wins and four losses. 

Highlight of this game will be 
the duel between two Ail-American 
centers, Sammy Joe Odom of North- 
western and Greg Van Orden of 
the Mountaineers. Odom was elect- 
ed to the NAIA while Van Orden 
was chosen on the Williamson All- 
America squad. 

Appalachian ranks in the top 10 
in rushing defense as they have 
given up an average of under 60 
yards a game. This means that the 
Demons may have to go to the air. 

Capable of throwing the long ones 
are Don Beasley and Donnie Car- 

The Demons will also be depend- 
ing on Johnny Ray Norman. Nor- 
man leads his team with 13 recep- 
tions for a total of 229 yards. 
Close behind him is Roy Gentry 
with a total of eight receptions and 
132 yards. 

Having the task of cracking 
through the Mountaineers huge line 
will be Claude Patrick. He has an 
average of 4.1 yards per carry and 
his running mate will be Jerry 
Burton, who has a 4.5 yard average. 
Scoring leader for the Demons this 
year is Glenn Talbert with 30

Saturday night should prove to be 
very interesting. Among the many 
things on tap will be the battle be- 
tween Northwestern's Sammy Joe 
Odom and Appalachian's Greg Van 
Orden. Both of these men were 
elected to All-American teams last 
year and both are trying to put on 
a repeat performance. 

Sammy Joe has shown his tre- 
mendous effort as an All-American 
throughout this season and it isn't 
easy to do this on a team with a 
losing record. 

Coach Jack Clayton once said: 
"A boy can't give less than 100 per 
cent around Sammy Joe. He will 
make them look bad because he 
practices and plays so hard." This 
has been proven as Odom has been 
awarded the Alonzo Stagg Award 
twice this year. 

Even in a game when the De- 
mons are losing, you are not sur- 
prised when the announcer says 
the tackle was made by Sammy 
Joe. In the opinion of this writer, 
Odom should be selected as an All- 
American for his second straight 

Going into the predictions this 
week, I am enjoying an even .700 
average with a total of 21 right and 
nine wrong. Last week I was able 
to hit on seven out of ten. Things 
are looking bad for this week 
though as there is going to be some 
tough games played. Its no use 
backing out now so here goes an- 
other week's work. 

Northwestern (7) over Appa- 
lachian — Demons have winning 
streak going with them. Odom 
winner over Van Orden. 

University of Southern Mississip- 
pi (20) over Southwestern — Proud 
Southerners engage in another vic- 
tory over the Canines. 

McNeese (14) over Louisiana 
College — Cowboys lasso Wildcats 
to keep perfect record alive. 

Louisiana Tech (6) over Tennes- 
see Tech - Bulldogs fly high over 
the Eagles on the passing of Billy 

Arlington (7) over Northeast — 
Indians continue losing ways as 
Rebels take victory in Texas. 

LSU (3) over Ole Miss— Tigers 
have done it before and will do it 

Tulane (6) over South Carolina 
—Time for the Wave to win? 

Workshop Set 

Northwestern State College will 
host the North Louisiana High 
School Dance Workshop under the 
auspices of the Health and Physi- 
cal Education department Saturday

physical education, teachers of 
dancing in elementary, high school, 
junior high school and college 
levels have been invited to attend

Tau Kappa Epsilon 

In case anyone heard the voices 
of a group of Greeks a few weeks 
ago, they were those of the mem- 
bers and pledges of Tau Kappa Ep- 
silon serenading their newly elect- 
ed sweetheart, Miss Sandra Moore. 
She was presented with a bouquet 
of red roses from the fraternity. 
As the seventh sweetheart of Tau

cipated in the Homecoming acti- 
vities by being presented in the 
parade Saturday morning.

an original Tri Sigma song they 
had written especially for the slum- 
ber party. 

The same night Tri Sig visited

Though it was a sleepless night, 
Tri Sigma now has another fun- 
filled event to add to their "book 
of memories."

vealed to the pledges during a 
special ceremony. Following a mid- 
nite supper, a seance was held in 
a back room, where "Cus" revealed 
itself once more in the form of a 
rising table that taps out answers 
to questions asked of it. This is a 
traditional game played each year 
at the Homecoming slumber party. 

Miss Carolyn Roberts, returning 
graduate, attended the party and 
activities of the day. She is teach-

Parking Problem 
Still On Campus 

Chief James K. Lee, head of the 
Northwestern State College Cam- 
pus Security, told the "Current 
Sauce" Wednesday that the park- 
ing problem on campus still exists. 

"Because we have 1,488 student 
automobiles registered," he said 
"and because we have not expand- 
ed our parking facilities, the park- 
ing problem still exists on this cam- 
pus." Students have been asked 
to keep their cars in the lots to 
which they have been assigned. 

Chief Lee also told the "Sauce" 
that the Campus Security now has 
a radio tie-in with the city police, 
parish sherrif's department and 
state patrol units. The base station 
is in the campus office, with mobil 
units in the patrol cars used by 
the group. 

He added that Campus Security 
workers must be within hearing 
distance of the two-way radio at 
al times

(Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!", 
and "Barefoot Boy With Cheek.") 


In a recent learned journal (Playboy) the distinguished board 
chairman (Ralph "Hot Lips" bigafoos) of one of our most 
important American industrial corporations (the Arf Mechan- 
ical Dog Co.) wrote a trenchant article in which he pinpointed 
our single most serious national problem: the lack of culture 
among science graduates. 

Let me hasten to state that Mr. Sigafoos's article was in no 
sense derogatory. He said emphatically that the science grad- 
uate, what with his gruelling curriculum in physics, math, and 
chemistry, can hardly be expected to find time to study the 
arts too. What distresses Mr. Sigafoos— and, indeed, all of us— 
is the lopsided result of today's science courses: graduates 
who can build a skyscraper but can't compose a concerto; who 
know Newton's Third Law but not Beethoven's Fourth Sym- 

% ksided 'mlt 'cf W^cime 

phony; who are familiar with Fraunhofer's lines but not with 

Mr. Sigafoos can find no solution to this lamentable imbal- 
ance. I, however, believe there is one— and a very simple one. 
It is this: if students of science don't have time to come to 
the arts, then the arts must come to students of science. 

For example, it would be a very easy thing to teach poetry 
and music right along with physics. Students, instead of being 
called upon merely to recite, would instead be required to 
rhyme their answers and set them to familiar tunes— like, for 
instance, the stirring Colonel Bogey March. Thus recitations 
would not only be chock-a-block with important facts but 
would, at the same time, expose the students to the aesthetic 
delights of great poetry and music. Here, try it yourself. You 
all know The Colonel Bogey March. Come, sing along with me: 

Is what we learn in class. 

Said energy is mass. 

Is high-falutin' 

And Pascal's a rascal. So's Boyle. 
Do you see how much more broadening, how much more up- 
lifting it is to learn physics this way? Of course you do. What? 
You want another chorus? By all means: 

He made the Leyden jar. 

He made the Trolley car. 

Rode in a surrey 

And Diesel's a weasel. So's Boyle. 

Once the student has mastered The Colonel Bogey March, 
he can go on to more complicated melodies like Death and Trans- 
figuration, Sixteen Tons, and Boo-Hoo. 

And when the student, loaded not only with science but 
with culture, leaves his classroom and lights his Marlboro 
Cigarette, how much more he will enjoy that filter, that flavor, 
that pack or box ! Because there will no longer be a little voice 
within him repeating that he is culturally a dolt. He will know 
—know joyously— that he is a complete man, a fulfilled man, 
and he will bask and revel in the pleasure of his Marlboro as a 
colt rolls in new grass — exultant and triumphant— a truly 
educated human person— a credit to his college, to himself, and 
to his tobacconist!

Student Council Minutes 

October 28, 1963 
The meeting was called to order 
by president Sonny Hargrove. Af- 
ter the minutes were read and ap- 
proved, the roll was called. 

President Hargrove appointed a 
committee composed of Steve Bl- 
ount, Sandra Joyce, Bill Nance, 
and Roy Corley to further investi- 
gate this possibility. The commit- 
tee will investigate the costs of ob- 
taining such a band and report 
their findings to the council. 

Harry Mobley reported that the 
highway department would donate 
litter bags to the council for dis- 
tribution. These bags would not be 
school colors as originally suggest- 
ed. Mobley is still checking all 
possible sources in an attempt to 
find where the council might order 
bags in school colors. 

Information Group 

Vince Cuellar announced that 
Katherine Berry, J.O. Charrier, and 
Carmen Codina had been appoint- 
ed as a student information comm- 
ittee. This committee would be in 
charge of announcing all elections 
and campus wide activities. 

Roy Corley read the portion of 
the constitution which stated that 
all Student Council Minutes were 
to be published in the "Current 
Sauce." Duffy Wall reported that 
difficulties had arisen between the 
printer and the "Current Sauce" 
on the size type to be used. Wall 
said that the difficulty should be 
cleared up this week. 

The question was raised as to 
whether a member of the Potpour- 
ri staff would be allowed to attend 
council meetings. President Har- 
grove said that the council would 
be glad to have a member of the 
Potpourri staff attend all meetings. 


Vince Cuellar presented a con- 
tract from the Rhythm Dukes in 
which the band agreed to play for 
a dance November 2, 1963 from 
9:30 P. M. to 12:00 A. M. for $125. 
Cuellar made a motion that the 
council accept this contract. Sec-

Lectures Underway 
By Catholic Group 

Father Cornelius O'Brien, direc- 
tor of the Catholic Student Center 
and Chaplain to the Northwestern 
State College Newman Club, is pre- 
senting four series of lectures at 
the Catholic Student Center from 
6:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday through 
Friday. The series will run through 
the remainder of the fall semester. 

These lectures are a part of a 
nation wide attempt currently be- 
ing undertaken on some 700 non- 
sectarian campuses to present tra- 
ditional Christian Philosophy and 
Theology. According to Father 
O'Brien, the lectures are designed 
primarily for Catholic students, but 
are open to those of all faiths who 
desire to attend. 

In an effort to satisfy the needs 
and interests of many, a variety of 
subject matter is offered. "The Per- 
sonality and Humanity of Christ," 
a study of Christ the man, is of- 
fered on Tuesdays. "Basic Catholic 
Doctrine," is taught on Wednes- 
days. On Thursdays Father O'Brien 
considers the Mass. These lectures 
will deal with all aspects of the 
Mass which is the central part of 
Catholic worship. The Friday series 
will deal with a study of the Vati- 
can Ecumenical Council, currently 
holding its second session in Rome.

by Lola Ross 
Sauce Staff Writer 

William J. "Bill" Dodd, candidate 
for State Superintendent of Edu- 
cation, paid a visit to the "Current 
Sauce" Thursday afternoon. He 
served as sports editor for the 
"Sauce" while attending college 

The candidate was in Natchi- 
toches to speak to the Kiwanis 
Cluh and also to attend a coffee 
honoring him and Mrs. Dodd. 

He is now president of the State 
Board of Education. Dodd served 
as lieutenant governor under the 
late Gov. Earl K. Long from 1948- 
58 and as state auditor from 1956- 
60. Prior to that he served as a 
representative in the legislature. 
He served as president of the 
House Education Committee in 19 

A native of Oakdale, Dodd's ex- 
perience also includes teaching, 
coaching and administering in the 
state's public school system. 

While attending NSC (which was 
then State Normal College), Dodd 

served as editor of the Potpourri, 
was a champion debater, and par- 
ticipated in athletics including 
football, baseball and track. He 
was president of the student coun- 
cil during his senior year which 
was 1934. 

Several faculty members, plus a 
past president of the old Normal 
College were also in the "Sauce" 
office to talk with Dodd. Besides 
staffers, those present were Son- 
ny Hargrove, NSC student body 
president; Sue Burgdorf, Miss 
"Current Sauce;" Otis Crew, reg- 
istrar; Weldon Walker, purchasing 
agent; Dr. William Beyer, profes- 
or and assistant dean of education; 
Wayne Summers, last years 'Sauce' 
editor; and Edwin Rice, "Sauce" 

Former Normal president A. A. 
Fredericks introduced Dodd to the 
group, and described him a "very 
interprising young man" while at- 
tending college here. Fredericks 
taught Dodd while the candidate 
was engaged in the agricultural 

Variety, Quantity And Quality 
Found In Purple Jacket Revue 

by Bill Ellis 

Variety, quantity, and quality, 
essential elements in any revue 
were to be found on the stage of 
the Fine Arts Auditorium Wednes- 
day evening when the Purple Jack- 
ets of Northwestern State College 
presented their 21st Annual Revue. 

From the standpoint of variety 
and quantativeness there was plen- 
ty to please all tastes. Acts ranged 
from the currently popular hoote- 
nanny types to more sophisticated 
semi-classical numbers. The Revue 
featured 24 acts including vocal 
solos, duets and quartets, comedy, 
a Japanese Tableau, a piano duet, 
a pantomime artist the gymnast- 
ics team, a baton twirler and a 
Dixieland Combo. 

On the side of quality, most of 
the acts demonstrated prepared- 
ness, talent, and some degree of 
originality. On this all are to be 

Lack of Coordination 

There were some evidences of 
lack of coordination between the 
technical crew and the people on 
stage. These were not disturbing, 
and considering the difficulty in- 
volved in mounting a show of this 
nature all came out well. 

The production's greatest weak- 
ness and greatest asset were, in this 
reviewer's opinion the same — 
length. The length created by a 
very substantial number of people 
willing to lend their talents for 
this show created an over all re- 

vue lasting nearly two hours and 
20 minutes without an intermission. 
This is too long, but we certainly 
do not want to discourage these 
people or others like them from 
putting on shows of this nature. 
It would seem that the difficulty 
could easily be solved by two 
things — an intermission and better 

The Purple Jackets and their 
sponsor Miss Eve Mouton are to 
be congratulated on an evening of 
fine entertainment. We shall be 
looking forward to their next

VOL. XLLX— No. 11 Northwestern State College, Natchitoches, Louisiana Friday, Nov. 8, 1963 

Kyser To Address 
Assembly Monday 

Seldom does a college president 
address the student body of his 
own college, except in matters of 
discipline and in introductory 
speeches, but Dr. John S. Kyser, 
president of Northwestern State 
College, will speak Monday at 10 
a.m., during an all-college assembly 

Dr. Kyser, presiding officer of a 
sectional meeting of the Congress 
of International Geographical Un- 
ion in Washington, D.C., in 1952, 
will speak on an international re- 
lations problem in the spotlight 
today: "The United States -Eu- 


"Here on our campus," says Mrs. 
Ora G. Williams, assistant profes- 
sor of English and chairman of the 
assembly committee, "we have a 
noted authority on international 
relations, and because of this, the 
assembly committee asked Dr. 
Kyser to speak." 

Photography has for many years 
been Dr. Kyser's hobby, and he and 
Mrs. Kyser have traveled through- 
out Europe, making films and 

Demon Marching Band Will Give 
Final Home Performance Saturday 

Saturday night during half-time 
presentation at the Northwetsern 
State College-McNeese game, the 
Demon Marching Band will make 
its final home appearance for the 
1963 season. 

During the past, students of 
Northwestern as well as their ad- 
versaries across the stadium have 
been well entertained by the fine 
performances given by the band. 
Many people have remarked that 
this is one of the finest sounding 
marching bands ever produced at 

Under the direction of Dwight 
Davis, associate professor of mu- 
sic, Edward Tarratus, assistant pro- 
fessor who plans and rehearses 
football game half-time shows and 
parades, and graduate assistant 
Harold Flurry, the band has proven 
itself to be a valuable asset in the 
previous five football games. In 
addition to the games, the band has 
played at four pep-rallies, and 
three parades, and is scheduled to 
play in the annual Natchitoches 
Christmas Festival and parade. 

The student band officers who 
are greatly responsible for the fine 

showing of the group both on and 
off the field are, James Sprayber- 
ry, president; Ben Ash, vice-presi- 
dent; Gordon Ferguson, secretary 
and drum major; Marjorie Regions, 
feature twirler; and Wanda Rad- 
ford, head majorette. 

The youthfulness of the band is 
underlined when it is considered 
that there are only four graduating 
seniors in the entire group. These 
four are, James Sprayberry, Diana 
Aldrich, Clarissa Carter, Larry Ed- 
dy and John Gholson. As a conse- 
quence, it is expected that the 
1964-65 band will be an outstanding 
musical organization. 


After the fall season the band 
reorganizes into a concert band un- 
der the direction of Davis. Students 
who play concert band instruments 
are invited to talk with Davis about 

Students from almost all depart- 
ments on the campus are repre- 
sented in this years marching band, 
and any student is eligible for mem- 
bership. Rehearsal time and per- 
formances are planned with the 
students class and study schedule 
in mind. 

Survey Shows Students Look For Looks In Mate 

by Diane Taylor 
Sauce Staff Writer 

In a recent survey taken by five 
members of the Sociology 405 
class, it was discovered that among 
the 500 interviewed, a startlingly 
high percentage of Northwestern 
State College students consider 
looks a more important q u al i t y 
than intelligence in a husband or 

A qusetion on the survey taken 
hy Jimmie Dale Baughman, Acey 
yines, Marti Roberts, Buddy Mart- 
inez and Tanyau Bracy asked, "In 
order of importance, which three 
things would you look for in a pro- 
spective spouse?" 

The majority of the students list- 
ed. (1) personality, (2) looks, (3) 

Going Sseady 

Other questions asked on the list 
showed that 60 per cent of the up- 
Perclass girls go steady. Fifty per 
ce nt of the freshmen girls and 18 
Per cent of the freshmen boys go 
steady. On the other hand, about 
15 per cent of the students quizzed 
do not date at all. 

When asked, "Do you look for 
the same qualities in a date as 
those you would look for in a hus- 
band or wife," the majority of the 
students gave positive answers. 
The "nays" were in the lowest per- 
centile, with upperclass males lead- 
ing this minority group. Highest 
percentile in the "yes" column 
came from the freshmen girls, with 
80 per cent. 

Engagement Favored 

The Modern Marriage and Family 
Life panel, taught by Dr. Ora V. 
Watson, associate professor of soc- 
iology, showed in the survey that 
i most Northwestern students favor 
an engegement period of from 6 to 
12 months. 

An amazingly high percentage of 
female students said they would 
consider marrying while still in 
college. Boys showed their level- 
headedness in their answers to this 
question. Sixty per cent of the 
upperclass males and 54 per cent 
of the freshmen males answered 

It was mostly the freshmen girls 
who thought being in a sorority or 

fraternity a definite advantage in 
dating. Upperclassmen answers in- 
dicated they know better! 

More surprising answers were 
read after the survey's question, 
"Is there a tendency on campus to 
date those who 'rate' regardless 
of their desiribility as mates?" 
Upperclassmen girls said "yes" 
with a 55 percentage, while 50 per 
cent of the freshmen girls answer- 
ed positively. Negative answers 
were the highest among boys with 
60 per cent of the upperclassmen 
and 47 per cent of the freshmen 
answering "no." 

In general, the survey's out- 
come made it clear that NSC stu- 
dents : feel there should be a public 
parking place, would date divorc- 
ed persons but not married ones, 
feel that a girl does not have to pet 
on a date to be popular, would 
consider marrying a person of an 
opposite religion, consider going 
steady a "stepping stone" to mar- 
riage, find it easy to discuss pro- 
blems with dates, are possessive 
with their dates, do not flirt with 

others while on a date, do not kiss 
on a first date, and consider them- 
selves good dates. 

Older Girls 

NSC boys agree, in the 80 per- 
centage, that they would date girls 
older than themselves. They also 
agree they do not always plan their 
dates in advance. Neither do they 
think it fair for the boy always 
bear the expenses of a date. 

Girls on the campus agreed, for 
the most part, that it is the respon- 
sibility of both the boy and the 
girl to draw the line on petting, 
that it is a not wise to talk of 
other dates with your partner for 
the evening, that they would not 
accept a blind date with another 
student, and that they find public 
display of affection between dat- 
ing and engaged couples offensive. 

Almost 100 per cent of the stu- 
dents asked, said their parents ap- 
prove of the majority of their 

Only about 50 per cent of the 
students, in all categories inter- 

What's In A Spouse? 

• Personality 

• Looks 

• Intelligence 

viewed, agreed that "there is 
enough to do on a date at NSC." 

Ill At Ease 

It's the freshmen boys and the 
upperclass girls who answered 
"no" to this one: "Are you ill at 
ease with the opposite sex?" (Ob- 
viously this is why the freshmen 
girls get the dates with the upper- 
classmen. They can all share their 
misery! ) 

When the question of drinking 
came up, the freshmen and upper- 
classmen girls answered exactly op- 
posite. Freshmen girls do not want 
their dates to drink, while upper- 
class females do not express strong 
disapproval. Answers among the 
boys evened up fairly equally. 
About half do mind, while the 
other half do not. 

And answers proved it's mostly 
freshmen students who expect to 
meet their sprouse on campus. Up- 
perclassmen boys — 75 per cent of 
them— said "no," and 52 per 
cent of the upperclass girls do 
not expect to meet their man at

Search For Material 

Mr. and Mrs. Esmond A. Grosz, 
of Riverside Calif., visited Natchi- 
toches Oct. 26-28, in order to search 
for information on Mrs. Grosz's 
great-grandfather, Col. Lewis Gus- 
tavas De Russy. 

Mrs. Groz is writing a book 
on her distinguished ances- 
tor, who married Eliza Daven- 
port Russell, the great-grandmother 
of Miss Gratia Smith, and grand- 
mother of Miss Scharlie E. Russell, 
after whom the Library at North- 
western State College is named. 
Colonel De Russy is buried in the 
Russell Cementery at Grand Ecore. 

While in Natchitoches, Mrs. 
Groz devoted much of her time to 
working in the archives collection 
of the Russell Library. She will 
spend next year in France, where 
she will seek further for material 
on the De Russy family.

Research Chemists Work On Graduate Degrees 

by Lola Ross 

Three industrial research chem- 
ists of this area have returned to 
school to work on graduate de- 
grees. They represent United Gas 
Company of Shreveport and Carey 
Salt Company of Winnfield, and re- 
port that experience before school- 
ing again is proving profitable in 
their work at Northwestern. 

The courses being pursued by 
the three involve practical effort 
in the fields of research and pro- 
duction, and will enliven their 
knowledge and abilities in their 
field — chemistry. 

Continued Studies 

W. B. Wright, 38, received a B.S. 
in chemistry from Louisiana State 
University in 1948. He is married, 
and is a lifelong resident of Shreve- 
port. In the fall of 1962 he began 
his NSC graduate work, and is con- 
tinuing his studies this semester. 
He is a chemist associated with 

United Gas Company. 

Also a chemical researcher for 
United Gas, Robert Pitts entered 
Northwestern last spring. He re- 
ceived his B.S. in chemistry from 
Arkansas University in 1953, is 
married, and the father of a 
daughter and three sons. His wife, 
too, has a B.A. degree from the 
Arkansas school. Pitts plans to 
be in residence at Northwestern 
next spring and summer. 

Both Pitts and Wright commute 
Tuesday and Thursday nights from 

The Third 

The third chemist, John B. Tully, 
is associated with Carey Salty Com- 
pany, Winnfield. He is a Hoosier, 
having graduated from Indiana 
State College at the age of 27, 
in 1950, with a B.S. in chemistry. 
He is the father of five sons, the 
eldest being in computer electron- 
ics training with the U.S. Navy at

head of NSC's Department of Phy- 
sical Science. 

Plans Announced 
For Stage Band 

Edward Tarratus, assistant pro- 
fessor of music, has announced 
plans for the forming of a North- 
western State College stage band. 
An organizational meeting will be 
held in the band room Monday 
at 4 p.m. for all prospective mem- 
bers and for all interested stu- 

Tarratus stated that students 
need not be music majors to join, 
and asked anyone interested in any 
way with the playing or arranging 
of jazz, to come to the meeting. 

Saxophone, trumpet, trombone, 
piano, drummer, string bass and 
guitar players are needed as well 
as singers. 

Future plans for the club in- 
clude a jazz concert to be given 
in February.

Think Of Others Before You Rip 
A Page From That Magazine 

Russell Library subscribes to magazines covering virtually 
all areas of academic study, and has well into the thousands of 
books on its shelves. But lately it is having trouble keeping 
them in tact. 

Obviously, students are accomodating themselves with in- 
formation from the library by ripping articles from magazine 
pages and even complete chapters from books. The practice 
was instigated years ago, but has reached acute stages recently. 

Northwestern State College spends literally hundreds of 
dollars for magazine subscriptions annually. Students' aca- 
demic needs are met as sufficienty as possible by the library, 
but we as students are obviously too immature to use available 
facilities appropriately and indestructively. 

Checks on materials which leave the library in the arms 
of students have failed to stop the outflow of materials which 
should remain within the library. More drastic measures are 
in order. 

Some students do comply with regulations which prohibit 
destruction of library equipment and materials; certainly not 
all students participate in sneaking around bookshelves to tear 
articles from magazines and hardback texts. But some do — 
this is the point. 

We are charged no fees for library use. The bill presented 
us at registration includes no extra charge for materials which 
we see fit to make unusable for future students. 

A significant number of faculty members report that mag- 
azine assignments are relatively difficult for class members to 
complete. Class members complain as well. "First come first 
served," is the motto of some students, and often the first who 
has access to the artice inquestion rips it from the magazine 
covers and classmates are unable to find the article and com- 
plete their homework. 

Perhaps we should recommend to Dr. Eugene P. Watson, 
head librarian, that he seek to enforce a new "library avail- 
ability charge," on students at registration. Or maybe we 
should be forced to pay a small fee each time we enter the 
library. But these are not our recommendations. 

We ask, simply, that Northwestern men and women act 
as such and think twice before destroying library materials. 
Surely a second consideration would result in the conclusion 
that ripping apart library magazines is the wrong way to ful- 
fill the teacher's assignment.

Watch Your Language 

Mistaken English in the "New York Times?" One's mind 
rebels at the thought that that oft-quoted example of excellent 
writing and fine editing could contain any misuse of the Eng- 
lish language. 

Yet the fact is that enough errors have occurred in the 
"Times" to fill at least two books, both of them written by the 
paper's assistant managing editor, Theodore Bernstein. Some 
of these errors are reprinted here on the theory that what's 
good for the "Times" is good for the Northwestern student. 

Among the everyday examples of egregious errors in Eng- 
lish is improper use of "among." A "Times" story had the line: 
"Firemen grope among the wreckage." Bernstein's retort: 
"among" means "in the midst of countable things." When 
the things are not separable, the word is "amid" or "amidst." 

"Some students are repulsed by the thought of going into 
debt for education." The sentence may be true, but it is not 
correct. "Repulsed" is a word meaning to be beaten or driven 
back. The proper word is "repelled," which conveys the idea 
of aversion, says Bernstein. 

Bernstein's remarks lead us to wonder how many similar 
errors crop up in everyday speech and even in the pages of the 
"Sauce." We'll do our bit to help. We're off to sharpen our 
editing pencils, more determined than ever to watch our

Still In Business 

To the Students of Northwestern: 
Last week the "Current Sauce'' 
stated that Community Cleaners 
was going out of business. Com- 
munity Cleaners is not going out 
of business, just Mr. and Mrs. 
Campbell are going out of busi- 
ness. We have sold our cleaning 
shop to a former NSC student, who 
graduated in 1959. He served four 
years in the service and returned 
to Natchitoches to pay us a visit 
as so many old graduates have 
done, and upon learning we were 
wanting to sell our shop to move 
back to Oklahoma, decided to buy 
it. He has worked with us during 
October in order to learn the bus- 
iness and you students. I believe 
he is qualified to give you as good 
or perhaps better service than we 

His name is Ralph Sparks, and 
I'm sure he will be proud to serve 
all of you the best he can. 

Mrs. Campbell and I plan to stay 
on with him until he can operate 
without us. 

We take this means of saying 
"Thank you from the bottom of 
our hearts, for the business, friend- 
ship and kindness you have all be- 
stowed upon us during our stay in 
Natchitoches," and remember one 
thing; where-ever we go, mem- 
ories of NSC will always be with 

So don't forget Community 
Cleaners is still in business as big 
as ever and we want to see you 
coming in the door as always, we 
miss you. 

As ever, 

Mr. and Mrs. Campbell

Better Red Than Dead? 

Yes. Before you start scream- 
ing "Communist," allow me to ex- 
plain that the point of this work 
is not Marxist dogma vs. Capital- 
ism, but that of the great intol- 
erance men hold for those out- 
side of their own particular herd. 

Imagine two individuals walk- 
ing up to each other and each pro- 
claming, "I am bigger, stronger 
and smarter than anybody else in 
the world and since my way of life 
is Truth, you are wrong." These 
persons would most likely argue 
and then step into the street for 
a gunbattle to settle their differ- 
ences. But an open grave makes no 
distinction between Right and 
Wrong. It engulfs all who are 
thrown into it and rejects none. 
However, when a majority of in- 
dividuals in a given area make 
such a declaration about them- 
selves as a whole, they are thought 
noble and patriotic. They sing ho- 
sannas to each other, put up sta- 
tues, and teach their school child- 
ren to admire the most blatant ad- 
vocates of national conceit. 

The greater portion of what 
makes up our lives is independent 
of ideologies and can exist under 
either system. We all eat, sleep, 
love, have sex desires, and concern 
ourselves with the avoidance of 
pain. Contrary to popular opinion, 
Communists are not fire-breathing, 
baby-devouring monsters with yel- 
low teeth and green, wrinkled ears. 
I am sure that they laugh, cry, sing, 
frown, and gambol in the same 
sense that any other people in the 
world do.

mm ^Jt, 



Dear Readers, 

I am deviating from the usual 
format of my column and bringing 
to you in a complete uncensored 
version, my latest novel in several 
earthy installments. It is written 
under my alternate pen name, Sam 
Schnellbessenbinder. It has never 
been published before, because no 
one besides the "Current Sauce" 
has the nerve. 


Under the Apple Tree, or I was 
a Teenage Adolescent 

Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4 and part of 5 

I was sitting on a bench watching 
some pigeons do terrible things to 
the columns when a lass (That's 
Irish for "co-ed") walked up and 
said, "What are you doing sitting 
out here in dirty sneakers without 
socks, and cut-off jeans, madras 
belt, and a white shirt with the 
sleeves cut off?" 

"This is not a white shirt. It is 
a madras shirt that I sent to the 
laundry. Poor thing bled to death." 

"Oh," said she, "But what are 
you doing?" 

"I am thinking profound 
thoughts," said L 

"Gee," said she, (Which was a 
pretty profound statement.) "I 
always wanted to meet someone 
who thought profound thoughts." 

"My name is Sam Schnellbessen- 
binder," said I. 

"You're putting me on," said 

"You are right," said I, "That is 
merely a pen name, I am really 
Sonny Carter." 

"I am Grenelda Thurmmer," 
said she, "sometimes referred to as 
'The Body'." 

Said I, "How did you ever get 
stuck with a name like that?" 

"I don't know. You're the one 
who's writing this story," said she. 

"That's a good answer," said I. 

"You like that, huh?" said she. 

"I like that, and if you are an 
English major, I will fall in love 
with you, so I can pass English." 
said I. 

"I am," said she, "and with me 
behind you, we will pass English 
together, get married, and become 
very prolific." 

And so we spent the winter lost 
in love and English textbooks. But 
mostly when we weren't studying, 
we sat around thinking profound 

Like Cognac has a specific grav- 
ity of .38872 less than Grenadine. 
(Profound, No?) 

See "Jest Wandering" next week 
for more thrilling chapters of 
"Under the Apple Tree, or I was 
a Teenage Adolescent." 

Christians may resent the substi- 
tution of "Communist" for "Samar- 
itan," for it would compel them to 
realize how far they have strayed 
from the teachings of their own 
God and Savior. 

I suggest that we reevaluate 
our own feelings and their origins 
towards others. Have they come 
about by careful consideration of 
unslanted facts or have they been 
absorbed from our own particular 
culture with no thought on our 
part at all? 

Ye Ole Mother Nature plays 
strange tricks on us at times-this 
year there is a bumper crop of pe- 
cans, but the dry weather seems to 
have ruined the hickory nut yield. 
Of course us country folks (say out 
around Martha ville) would notice 
such a case before most of our 
readers would. 

One thing which comes to mind 
ever so often, is that we'd par- 
ticularly like to have your sugges- 
tions about ways and means (pict- 
ures, features and whatever) of 
getting out a very SPECIAL edi- 
tion to mark the 50th birthday of 
the college's own newspaper. 

Not all the high winds you've no- 
ticed these past few days have 
been generated by the change in 
the weather. The political race 
has entered its final stage-hence a 
lot of the "breeze." 

The other day we happened to be 
reading a copy of "The Angolite," 
weekly publication of Louisiana 
State Penitentiary. 

We ran across a column called 
"On The Scene With Gene" by 
Gene Hoover which described con- 
ditions at Angola and other places 
closer to home. 

Here are a few quotes from that 

"Our taste buds consist of five 
different tastes, they are sweet, 
sour, bitter, burnt and salty. For 
instance a lemon pie would be a 
combination of sweet (sugar) and 
sour (the lemon) therefore every- 
thing we eat is a combination of 
these five tastes. This is nature, 
and has been every since man has 
been feeding his face. So, it is a 
constant source of amazement to 
me that the cooks in our messhall 
can completely ignore nature and 
add three new ones of their own, 
which are, RANK, RONG and 

"When you think of Penitentiary 
Rules being petty they will seem 
less irritable if you will consider 
them as obstacles designed to make 
you better, not bitter." 

"The last few nights have been 
wonderful for sleeping, the weath- 
er has been about as cold as the 
Hot Cakes they serve in the Mess-

Northwestern Gives Appalachian 33-20 Defeat 

t ilt( • ! Ill I if I'i'lHH 

By Rick Woodson 
Sauce Sports Writer 

Northwestern State's Demons 
played havoc with the highly touted 
defense of Appalachian State and 
outscored the Mountaineers 33-20 
last Saturday in Demon Stadium. 

A "Mom and Dad's Day" crowd 
saw the Demons score in every 
period, as they rolled up more than 
30 points for the second consecu- 
tive week. NSC stopped Florence 
33-14 last time out. 

The Hill-billies rushing defense 
was expected to give the Demons 
all they could handle, but NSC 
ignored the warnings and rolled up 
310 yards on the ground. AS was 
held to 71 yards running by the 
not-so-heralded Demons defense. 

Northwestern gained victory 
number three of the campaign 
along with four setbacks, and now 
all eyes are looking to this Satur- 
day when the McNeese Cowboys 
come to town for a big Gulf States 
Conference clash. The Demons 
could still retain the GSC title with 
a victory over McNeese. 

The Mountaineers jumped out in 
front 6-0 following a missed field 
goal by Ed Horton. The visitors 
moved 80 yards on just six plays 
and Larry Lawing got the TD from 
the six. Dennis Saunders missed 
the point after. 

Fifth Play 

On the fifth play after the en- 
suing kickoff, halfback Glenn Tal- 
bert streaked 62 yards to knot the 
score. Horton's kick missed and 
it remained 6-6. Al Dodd intercept- 
ed Guy Flynt's pass on the Billies 
48 and returned it to the 27 just 
prior to the end of the first quarter 
to give the Demons another oppor- 

James Aymond carried for three, 
Claude Patrick for two, and Jerry 
Burton twice for a first down at 
the 15. Quarterback Donald Beas- 
ley hit Talbert three plays later 
in the end zone for the touchdown. 
Bobby Parker booted the PAT to 
put NSC ahead 13-6 with 13 min- 
utes left in the half. 

AS failed to generate a drive 
after kickoff and punted to the 
Demons. Two passes missed and 
Talbert lost five, forcing NSC to 
kick. Wayne Walker's kick was 
blocked, however, and Lawing re- 
covered for the Hill-billies on the 
Demon 12. NSC stopped the threat, 
and took over on downs. 

Fulton Recovers 

Walker had to punt, to Nikki 
Helms, who fumbled the kick and 
Fred Fulton recovered for the De- 
mons on the AS 27. Patrick got the 
final eight yards after a pass inter- 
ference call, but the run was nulli- 
fied by a 15 yard holding penalty. 
NSC came right back on two Beas- 
ley aerials to the three, but Pat- 
rick fumbled in the end zone and 
Appalachian recovered for a touch- 

AS had the ball only two plays 
when James Aymond grabbed off 
a Flynt pass at the 42 and returned 
it to the Hill-billie 30. Donnie Car- 
roll then hit Aymond for the TD, 

test when a Demon fumble was re- 
covered by the visitors at the NSC 
10. The score then stood 26-12. 

AS captilized on another NSC 
fumble at the Demon 19 late in the 
final quarter, at the two. Lawing 
scored from the one, and Flynt 
passed to Larry Harbin for the 
two-point PAT. 

The Mountaineers never had the 
ball again, except for one brief 
moment. With one second left, 
Beasley connected with Talbert for 
the TD and Parker booted the con- 

Talbert paced the Demon attack 
with 98 yards on only six attempts 
for a touchdown, and caught two 
scoring passes. The Demons com- 
pleted only four of 16 tosses, but 
three of them went for six points. 
NSC had 20 first downs to eight 
for the Mountaineers.

and Parker missed the placement, 
and NSC led 19-6 at the half. 

Appalachian had to kick on the 
first series of downs in the second 
half, with Talbert returning it 
three yards to the 40. Burton then 
raced for 32 yards to the AS 28 on 
a fine run. Parker got eight, and 
Burton came right back with a 10 
yard jaunt for a first and goal at 
the 10, Parker scored from there 
and kicked the PAT for a 26-6 De- 
mon lead.

Well, something new has been 
added around Northwestern this 
week — a football team with a win- 
ning streak. The Demons really 
showed that they have the material 
as they shell-shocked Appalachian 
by a score of 33-20. More import- 
ant than the score is the fact that 
the Demons picked up an amazing 
total of 310 yards rushing against 
a team that had given up an ave- 
rage of 52 yards per game pre- 
viously. Maybe this will make the 
people who vote on the nation's 
top 20 in small college football 
take notice of another Gulf States 
Conference team. 

Football predictions stayed at the 
same clip this week as I hit on 
seven out of 10 again for a .700 
average. This brings the seasons 
total to 28 right and 12 wrong. The 
season's average also stayed at its 
.700 clip. The best prediction of the 
week was the Tulane-South Caro- 
lina game. For once in my life I 
was able to pick an upset. This 
week looks like an awful week as 
there will be no pushovers. I would 
like to take a week's vacation from 
predictions but the rest of the staff 
won't let me. So here we go again. 

McNeese (20) over Northwest- 
ern — Cowboys prove much too 
powerful as they go on to show 
that they are top 10 material. 

Northeast (7) over Southwest- 
ern — Indians scalp Bulldogs for 
second straight win of the season. 

Louisiana Tech (14) over South- 
eastern — Bulldogs bark could turn 
out worse than their bite. 

LSU (10) over TCU— Mighty 
Tigers claw for revenge over loss 
to Rebels of Mississippi. 

Ole Miss (28) over Tampa— 
Another easy team on the Rebels 

Texas (14) over Baylor— Big bad 
Baylor Bears trip to terrific terri- 
fying Texas team. 

Georgia Tech (20) over Florida 
State — Insects flying high. 

Arkansas (3) over Rice — Toss up. 

Auburn (6) over Mississippi 
State — Mighty Tigers are enjoying 
winning too much as they take on 
mad Canines from Mississippi- 

Tulane (7) over Tennessee— 
Greenies make it two out of nine- 

Some Demon Statistics: First 
downs, 103; net yards rushing, 
1241; net yards passing, 816; punt- 
ing and average, 29 - 39.7. 

Individual statistics: Glenn Tal- 


bert, 260 yards in 23 carries 
yard average. Pass receiving, John- 
ny Norman, 13 catches for 229 
yards. Pass interceptions, Al Dodd, 


And then there was the girl who 
knew so much about football that 
she said, "We won the game by 
making a touchdown in the bottom 
of the ninth inning." Oh, well, see 
you next week.

Demons Must Win Over Cowboys 
To Keep Conference Hopes Alive 

by Jerry Brill 
Sauce Sports Editor 

"We will have to play our best 
game to beat them." This quote 
comes from Coach Jack Clayton 
and perhaps best describes the 
Northwestern State College De- 
mons next opponent, the McNeese 

McNeese has won all five of its 
games this season and is trying to 
break its record of nine consecu- 
tive wins. As of right now, the 
Cowboys have seven. 

The Demons have shown an im- 
proved ball club. In their last two 
starts they have scored a total of 
66 points. They must have a win 
to keep their conference hopes 
alive. The Demons are 1-1 in the 
conference and McNeese is 2-0. 

Last Year 

In last year's action, the Cowboys 
turned back the Demons for the 
second straight year. A 68 yard 
pass play from Don Beasley to 
Glenn Talbert set up the Demons 
first and only score. Don Bossier 
and Darrell Lester, a pair of bull- 
dozer backs, plowed through the 
Demon line most of the evening 
as QB Tommy Thompson kept the 
defense off balance. Bossier scored 
twice, Lester once, and Guillory 
for the final marker. This was the 
Demons worst defeat of the year 

as they lost by a score of 26-6. 

The Demons will be relying 
heavily on the services of Glenn 
Talbert and Jerry Burton. Talbert 
leads the team in rushing average 
with 11.3 yards per carry while 
Burton leads the team in net yards 
gained with 298. 

Beasley Going 

Going for the Demons at quarter- 
back will be Don Beasley. Beasley 
has thrown 73 passes and com- 
pleted 30 for 544 yards and six 
touchdowns. On the receiving end 
of most of these passes has been 
Johnny Norman. Norman has 
caught 13 passes for a total of 229 

Handling the punting chores for 
the Demons will be Wayne Walker. 
Walker has booted the ball 29 
times for a 39.7 yard average. 

On defense will be Sammy Joe 
Odom and Al Dodd. Odom has al- 
ready been recipient of two Alon- 
zo Stagg Awards and has shown 
his fine ability as an Ail-American. 
Dodd has received the award once, 
as he picked off three intercep- 
tions against Appalachian. 

This game will be the live-or-die 
game for Northwestern. A loss 
will drop the Demons out of the 
conference while a win would give 
them a great chance for at least a 

Wesley Foundation, East Varnado 
Wins Intramural Volley Ball Meet 

A double elimination intramural 
tournament in volley ball, held in 
the Women's Gymnasium Tuesday 
afternoon, named Wesley Founda-

Rade Radasinovich 
Speaks To AWS 

Audubon Hall officers and Mrs. 
Myrtle Collins, house mother, were 
hosts of the monthly Associated 
Women Students council meeting 
Monday night. After the committee 
reports were given, winners of the 
monthly Bulletin Board Contest 
were announced. Last month Na- 
tchitoches won first place followed 
by Louisiana Hall and Audubon. 

Rade Radasinovich, professor of 
geography, was guest speaker and 
spoke on his trip to Hawaii. Rad- 
asinovich described Hawaii as a 
"Green Eternity," with a year 
round temperature of about 74 de- 
grees. Because of this, our fiftieth 
state has the tourist trade as the 
second largest industry in the is- 
lands. "Hawaii isn't as much the 
Polynesian state as we think it is," 
he said. The restaurants especially 
prove how American this small 
state is." 

At the conclusion of the speech, 
refreshments were served and the 
meeting was adjourned.

CLASS PRESIDENTS serving Northwestern State College

A favorite trick of authors is to 
give their view of society as a 
whole by taking what they con- 
sider a representative sample and 
isolating it in some way, so that 
the characters will not be distract- 
ed by outside influences while 
they are getting the author's point 

William Golding used this tech- 
nique when he put a group of 
young boys on a desert island. 
(Almost all of them turned to sav- 
ages, proving that man is degene- 
rate.) Katherine Anne Porter uses 
the same type of thing in "Ship of 
Fools," but her message is quite 

As the title suggests she put her 
people on a ship and sent them on 
a long voyage. As the title also 
suggests, she doesn't think too 
much of her people. Neither will 
you. But they may teach you some- 
thing, and that was the whole 
idea anyhow. 

First To Last 

From the first paragraph to the 
last, the passengers of this ocean 
liner are mercilessly shown by 
Miss Porter in all their lusts, pre- 
judices, fears, pettiness and mo- 
ments of self-pity. Almost every- 
one has an amazing ability to hurt 
others, and each, in turn, is quite 
easily hurt. 

If this is a true conception of 
life then you may ask: "Is it worth 
living, if all there is is hurt and 
pain." The passengers, or some of 
them, ask this same question. 
Each of them decides that life is 
worth living, but they cannot find 
a reason why. 

But they give the answer in their 
actions .Each of them hopes. Hopes 
for happiness. On every page they 
are desperately searching, grasping 
for the elusive pleasure and con- 
tentment they cannot find. Almost 
none of them attain their goal 
during the voyage, but the end 
finds them undismayed and opti- 
mistic, for each is sure that he 
Will find it very soon. (On the 
other side of the dock?) 

If the voyage is the journey of 
life, and this could very well be 
what the voyage represents, then 
Miss Porter is saying that it is only 
when the journey is over that man 
can find happiness. On the other 
side of the dock.

Clifton Droduy, freshman math- 
ematics major from Oakdale was 
elected ROTC Cadet of the Week. 
Droduy was selected over a field

or which is bestowed on a deserv-

the semester. 

(Editor's Note: Dr. Joseph B. 
Carlucci, head of the Northwestern 
State College Music Department, 
has written the following review 
of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra 
which performed here Tuesday, 
Oct. 22.) 

The Northwestern-Natchitoches 
Concert Association ran up the cur- 
tain on its 1963-64 Artist Series 
with a richly rewarding program 
by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. 
The Texas musicians, under the 
able direction of 35-year old Donald 
Johanos, appeared on the stage of 
the Fine Arts Auditorium and were 
soundly applauded by an enthusi- 
astic and appreciative audience of 
over 1,000 persons. 

Mr. Johanos, a native of Cedar 
Rapids, Iowa, and one of the few 
American-born conductors of a ma- 
jor symphony orchestra in this 
country, is a graduate of the East- 
man School of Music and pupil of 
Eugene Ormandy and other famous 
conductors He demonstrated a 
firm grasp of the musical forces at 
his command and shows promise 
of becoming an outstanding musical 
leader. He opened his concert here 
with the Symphony No. 6 in F ma- 
jor, the so-called "Pastoral" Sym- 
phony, by Ludwig van Beethoven. 
Mr. Johanos sensitively molded the 
warmly glowing melodic lines of 
this "hymn to nature," in keeping 
with Beethoven's own comment 
that the music represents an ex- 
pression of the feelings aroused by, 
rather than an attempt to paint 
musical pictures of, his beloved 
countryside. The string section 
sounded especially good in this 
work, as did the woodwinds in the 
second movement ("By the Brook") 
and in the third movement ("Vil- 
lage Festival"), particularly the 
talented lady oboe player.

contemporary piece by the still- 
living Swiss composer Frank Mar- 
tin. The basically modern melodic 
and harmonic idioms employed by 
Martin may have disturbed or puz- 
zled some listeners on first hear- 
ing, but the work as a whole 
seemed to delight laymen and mu- 
sicians alike. The playing of the 
seven soloists was superb, with a 
special word of praise going to the 
persons negotiating the difficult 
solo oboe and trumpet parts. 

The concert concluded with the 
romantically intoxicating strains of 

selections from Richard Strauss' 
opera "Der Rosenkavalier," ar- 
ranged as a concert Suite by the 
composer. This work, played with 
spirit throughout, conjured up the 
nostalgia of old Vienna and easily 
won the warmest applause from 
the audience. Mr. Johanos there- 
upon obliged his listeners with an 
encore, a vivacious reading of the 
Slavonic Dance No. 1 by Antonin 
Dvorak. This evoked more well- 
deserved applause and brought to 
a close a thoroughly pleasurable 
evening of music-making. 


(Author of "Rally Bound the Flag, Boys!" 
and "Barefoot Boy With Cheek.") 


I am now an elderly gentleman, full of y^ars and aches, but 
my thoughts keep ever turning to my undergraduate days. This 
is called "arrested development." 

But I cannot stop the healing tide of nostalgia that washes 
over me as I recall those golden campus days, those ivy-covered 
buildings (actually, at my college, there was only ivy : no bricks), 
those pulse-tingling lectures on John Dryden and Cotton 
Mather, the many friends I made, the many deans I bit. 

I know some of you are already dreading the day when you 
graduate and lose touch with all your merry classmates. It is 
my pleasant task today to assure you that it need not be so; 
all you have to do is join the Alumni Association and every year 
you will receive a bright, newsy, chatty bulletin, chock-full of 
tidings about your old buddies. 

Oh, what a red-letter day it is at my house, the day the 
Alumni Bulletin arrives ! I cancel all my engagements, take the 
phone off the hook, dismiss my resident osteopath, put the 
cheetah outside, and settle down for an evening of pure pleasure 
with the Bulletin and (need I add?) a good supply of Marlboro 

Whenever I am having fun, a Marlboro makes the fun even 
more fun. That filter, that flavor, that yielding soft pack, that 
firm Flip Top box, never fails to heighten my pleasure whether 
I am playing Double Canfield or watching the radio or knitting 
an afghan or enjoying any other diverting pursuit you might 
name— except, of course, spear fishing. But then, how much 
spear fishing does one do in Clovis, New Mexico, where I live? 

But I digress. Let us return to my Alumni Bulletin and the 
fascinating news about my old friends and classmates. I quote 
from the current issue : 

"Well, fellow alums, it certainly has been a wing-dinger of a 
year for us old grads! Remember Mildred Cheddar and Harry 
Camembert, those crazy kids who always held hands in Econ II? 
Well, they're married now and living in Clovis, New Mexico, 
where Harry rents spear-fishing equipment, and Mildred has just 
given birth to a lovely 28-pound daughter, her second in four 
months. Nice going, Mildred and Harry ! 

"Remember Jethro Brie, the man we voted most likely to 
succeed? Well, old Jethro is still gathering laurels ! Last week 
he was voted 'Motorman of the Year' by his fellow workers in 
the Duluth streetcar system. 'I owe it all to my brakeman,' 
said Jethro in a characteristically modest acceptance speech. 
Same old Jethro! 

"Probably the most glamorous time had by any of us old 
alums was had by Francis Macomber last year. He went on a 
big game hunting safari all the way to Africa ! We received many 
interesting post cards from Francis until he was, alas, acci- 
dentally shot and killed by his wife and white hunter. Tough 
luck, Francis! 

"Wilametta 'Deadeye' Macomber, widow of the late beloved 
Francis Macomber, was married yesterday to Fred 'Sureshot' 
Sigafoos, white hunter, in a simple double-ring ceremony hi 
Nairobi. Many happy returns, Wilametta and Fred ! 

"Well, alums, that just about wraps it up for this year. 
Buy bonds!';

Student Council 

November 4, 1963 

The meeting was called to or- 
der by President Sonny Hargrove. 
The roll was called, and the min- 
utes were read and approved. 

Vince Cuellar raised the ques- 
tion as to whether the council 
was going to hire a band for the 
dance Nov. 9. President Hargrove 
asked that Butch Chase give a 
brief financial report. Chase re- 
ported that a final Student Coun- 
cil budget was being prepared. 
The council has an approximate 
balance of $2243.60 in its budget 
at the present time. Of this amount 
approximately $836 will go for 
class dues and $350 for install- 
ation of the fountain. A discuss- 
ion followed as to the possibilities 
of hiring a band. Carolyn Thomas 
moved that Cuellar be instructed 
to contract a band to play for the 
dance Nov. 9. Chase seconded the 
motion. Motion passed. Roy Cor- 
ley moved that the council con- 
tract the Impacts to play Novem- 
ber 9th for $125. Seconded by 
Ricky Tarver. Motion passed. 
Milk Machines 

Pam Pepperman asked if milk 
machines were going to be placed 
in freshman dorms. It was report- 
ed that vendors were reluctant to 
place them in freshman dorms be- 
cause there was such a small 
volume of business. 

The committee which had been 
appointed to investigate the possi- 
bility of having some big name 
entertainment on campus met 
last week. Butch Chase reported 
that after a thorough study, the 
committee suggested that instead 
of raising the registration fee stu- 
dents should contact their student 
representatives on the Artist Ser- 
ies and let these people know what 
type entertainment the student 
body wants. 

Surplus To Council 

J. 0. Charrier raised the question 
of revamping the system of paying 
expenses for the POTPOURRI and 
CURRENT SAUCE. Charrier sug- 
gested the Student Council be put 
in charge of all funds for both pub- 
lications, and allocate these funds 
to the respective publications as a 
need arose. All surplus funds 
could then be put to use by the 
council for the benefit of the stu- 
dents. A committee composed of 
Steve Blount , Bill Nance, Sanda 
Joyce, and Charrier were appoint- 
ed President Hargrove to study 
the matter. 

Chase broughe to the attention 
of the problem of line breaking in 
the cafeteria. Charrier suggested 
that a $5 fine be imposed upon 
anyone caught committing this 
offense. Lewis Stahl suggested that 
the names of all offenders be an- 
nounced over the speaker in the 
cafeteria. Chase moved that stu- 
dent council members and fresh- 
man associates be in charge of an- 
nouncing the names of offenders 
over the sperker system and tell- 
ing them to report to Dean Fulton. 

Guitar Picking, Banjo Plunking 
In Full Force At Second Hootenanny 

by Henry Joiner 
Special To The Sauce 

The guitar picking, banjo plunk- 
ing, and hand-clapping crowds were 
back in full force for the second 
hootenanny last Friday night. The 
audience spilled over into the 
aisles of the Little Theatre and 
onto the floor of the Student Union 
in anticipation of an excellent 
show. They were not disappointed. 

Jerry, Don and Jerry began the 
folk-festive evening in the Little 
Theatre auditorium with a radio 
concert carried over the "Voice of 
Northwestern." They were aided 
by Rita Bernard on several selec- 
tions. The guitar style of Don El- 
kens in "Chilly Winds" was most 

Originality Needed 

All of the songs they did were 
originally made popular by the 
Kingstons, the Brothers Four, and 
P. P. and M. We are looking for- 
ward to the time when J. D. and J. 
will exibit even more of their 
abundant talent by doing original 
songs which will justify their abil- 
ity. Until then, all that one can say 
is that they sound a great deal like 
the groups they try to sound like. 

It was pleasing to note the num- 
ber of new performers who ap- 
peared for the first time on the 
folk-fest. Sharon Byrd accompanied 
herself on the guitar as she sang 
several Joan Baez songs in a style 
imitative of Miss Baez. Miss Byrd 
also did an original song which

Roy Corley asked when the sun

ton reported that the needed parts

was possible to place a pay tele- 
phone in each dorm. It was re- 
ported that telephone lines are 
hard to obtain in Natchitoches. 

Joe Butler raised the question as 
to when students directories could 
be obtained. The directories 
should be out as soon as the press 
is reprired. , 

Corley asked if the "straw poll" 
could be taken on Nov. 19 when 
Mr. and Miss NSC are elected. A 
discussion followed. It was decided

Students To Appear 
On Music Program 

Four Northwestern State College 
music majors will be seen and 
heard on the College Music Hall, 
a television program to be pre- 
sented Saturday at 1:30 p.m. by 
KSLA-TV. The College Music Hall 
is a new series devoted to musical 
programs performed by colleges in 
the Ark-La-Tex area. 

Featured soloists on the program 
will be Branko Stojadinovic, a 
freshman violin major from Bloom- 
ingdale, Illinois, and James W. Ran- 
dall, a junior trombone major from 
Vidalia. Stojadinovic, a pupil of 
John Maltese, will be accompanied 
by Wanda Radford, a sophomore 
piano major from Mansfield. Miss 
Radford is a student of Dr. Paul 
Torgrimson. Randall, a pupil of 
Dwight G. Davis, will be accom- 
panied by Sherry Moss, a senior 
piano major from Natchitoches. 
Miss Moss is a student of Dr. Tor- 

President John S. Kyser will ap- 
pear at the midway point in the 
program with remarks about the 
college, its growth, and its con- 
tributions to Louisiana. 

Southern Bell 
Interviews Set 

Southern Bell Telephone and 
Telegraph Company will have rep- 
resentitives in the placement of- 
fice Tuesday and Wednesday to 
interview students in the top half 
of the graduating class who have 
majored in business administra- 
tion, math, or industrial technology. 

The two representatives will be- 
gin the interviews at 9:30 a.m. and 
will conclude at 4 p.m. Any student 
desiring more information may 
contact Joe Webb in the place- 
ment office in Caldwell Hall. 

New Payment 
System Devised 

According to Dudley G. Fulton, 
director of student relations, a new 
system for paying room and board 
has been devised. With few excep- 
tions, henceforth dormitory occu- 
pants will pay such fees in their 
dormitory offices. 

It was pointed out that the 
changes were made for the benefit 
of the students to keep them from 
having to stand in line at the cash- 
ier's window. 

The new system involves pay- 
ment by check, draft, or money 
order only, which must be placed 
in a box in the dormitory office on 
three days assigned for payment. 
If students must pay with cash, 
they will do so as usual at the 
cashier's window in Caldwell Hall. 

Three Days 

Each check or money order must 
contain the address of the payer, 
and must be attached with a room 
and board slip. If rent is not paid 
on the three days assigned, it must 
be made at the cashier's window 
immediately following the allotted 

Exceptions to the rule are dorms 
with no office space. Residents of 
North, South and West Halls, and 
Stadium, will pay rent at the Camp- 
us Security Office. Residents of 
Scheib Hall, Bienville and Rebel 
Halls will pay as formerly until a 
satisfactory system for these dorms 
can be arranged. 

The last payment to be made 
this semester, in this new manner, 
is set to be paid December 12, 13, 
and 14. All dormitory residents are 
requested to comply with the new 
method as nearly as possible. 

Rifle Team Awaits

the Demon team in the ROTC ar- 

Competing for NSC were Paul 
Jeansonne, team captain, Kenneth 
Babin, John Sills, Mike Wardel and

The team fired a pistol match 
Thursday against Trinity Universi- 
ty of San Antonio, Tex. and North-

Merce Cunningham and Dance 
Company will present a dance con- 
cert Monday at 8 p.m. in the Fine 
Arts Auditorium at Northwestern 
State College. 

Exponents of the new trend, the 
company will be featured as the 
second in the artist series pro- 
grams this school year, according 
to Dr. Joseph B. Carlucci, head of 
the Northwestern - Natchitoches 
Concert Association. 

The "Ithaca Journal" wrote that 
"His art is as new and as different 
and probably as exciting as any- 
thing modern dance has ever pro- 
duced." The "Vancouver Sun" 
wrote "Their two-hour program 
left a capacity audience astounded 
and enthralled, possibly even 

Musical director of the company 
is John Gage, widely known for his 

"prepared piano," invented in the 
thirties. David Tabor, another mem- 
ber of the Merce company, is la- 
beled, "America's far-out pianist." 
He is instrumentalist for the 
troupe, and employs whistles and 
various electronics accessories. 

Tickets will be sold at the door 
for $4.40 for adults and $2.20 for 
children. Students will be admit- 
ted upon presenting their ID cards. 

President Kyser 
Presents Travelog 

President John S. Kyser prov- 
ided Northwestern State College 
students with a pictorial travelogue 
of Europe Monday at 10 a.m. in 
the second general assembly pro- 
gram of the fall semester. 

Tracing l\is tour last August, 
the president described scenes in 
Germany, France, Italy and Hol- 
land. He emphasized that Ameri- 
cans are basicly, Europeans, linked 
with Europe by two world wars. 

Color slides portrayed scenes 
from the tour of President and 
Mrs. Kyser from Frankfort, Ger- 
many to Paris, France, into Rhine- 
land country to Cologne and Ber- 
lin, to Hanover and VSolfstturg, 
Germany; and throughout France, 
Italy and Holland. 

Kyser stated in his address that, 
"The lessons of two World Wars 
has proven that we need a more 
educated citizenry." He urged that 
the students read more in order 
that they might determine for 
themselves whether or not Amer- 
ican foreign policy in the twen- 
tieth century has been a success. 
The essence of Americanism, he 
observed, is the future demand 
for more knowledge, to determine 
whether facts are correct because 
of evidence, to be able to debate 
them out in public. 

Following tlte president's lec- 
ture to the assembly, a brief pro- 
gram in observance of Veterans 
Day was tonducted by the Rev. 
Robert L. Tatum, director of the 
Wesley Foundation.

Critical of Column 

Dear Sir: 

In regard to the column you pub- 
lished in the Nov. 8, "Current 
Sauce" under the title of Rocinan- 
te by J. Vidmar, was a disgrace to 
the American race. Has he forgot- 
ten what our fore-fathers went 
through to get what we now enjoy? 
They stood firm for what they be- 
lieved was right and even died 
fighting for it. 

Now some character writes some- 
thing like this. It makes me wonder 
if he has ever studied American 
history or if the word America 
means anything to him. I wonder 
what he thinks when he sings "God 
Bless America." 

I think he should study the basic 
concepts of Communism and what 
they stand for. Does he know that 
Communists do not believe in God. 
He refers to Jesus as saying, "Love 
thy Neighbor as Thyself;" but 
Jesus didn't say to deny God in 
doing so. 

In conclusion I would like to say 
that I think Mr. Vidmar should re- 
view what he has said. I am only 
glad to say that there are not many 
who feel this way because if they 
were there would be no America

Favorable Comments 

Editor, Current Sauce: 

While numerous people are, per- 
haps justifiably, complaining about 
certain social conditions at NSC, 
some favorable comments are, 
nevertheless, also in order. 

The Dallas Symphony playing a 
beautiful concert here on October 
22nd, disappointed none who an- 
ticipated exceptional musical en- 
joyment. It is hoped that the Com- 
munity Concert series shall con- 
tinue such high standards, thereby 
enabling Northwestern students 
to learn to recognize and appreci- 
ate true artistry and showmanship., 
Conductor Donald Johanos demon- 
strated both qualities, as well as, 
perseverance that might serve as 
examples to any student. Unknown 
to the audience and the orchestra 
until after the performance, he con- 
ducted the entire program in the 
knowledge that his father had died 
earlier the day. Such devotion to 
obligation during such personal 
adversity is indeed rare. It is pa- 
thetic that so many students can- 
not be convinced of what they are 
missing in life by failing to take 
advantage of quailty cultural 

The apparent success of Mom and 
Dad Day is a second event deserv- 
ing commendation. Many parents 
who visited the campus really en- 
joyed the opportunity to be honer- 
ed guests. Braving the cold wea- 
ther, they argumented the good 
spirit evident at the NSC-Ajpala- 
chian game. Both parents and stu- 
dents expressed the sentiment that 
this tradition, among several other 
subject to recent controversy, is 
worth preserving. Giving our par- 
ents a reason and chance to be in- 
terested in Northwestern should 
be as natural as our own desire and 

Circulation Gripe 

Dear Editor: 

The "Current Sauce" is greatly 
appreciated and anticipated by the 
students. We admire this paper 
and are proud of it. 

Unfortunately, however, I feel 
I must submit a gripe about the 

I am an off-campus student. I 
have received four (4) copies of 
the "Sauce" this semester. I ob- 
tained two (2) from your office, 
one (1) from a rubbish can in 
Guardia Hall, and one (1) from 
the Industrial Arts building. I 
guess I just happened to hit it 
lucky and received one from a stu- 
dent taking them out to the dis- 
tribution points. 

I have conversed with several 
other off-campus students about 
this and found that they also have 
trouble in obtaining copies of the 

I am in and out of the Student 
Center daily except Sundays and 
have yet to find a copy of the 
"Sauce" there. As I do not eat in 
the dining halls this is the only 
distribution point I have to rely on. 

Below I have listed three (3) 
possible solution. 

I truly hope something can be done 
to allievate this problem. 

1. Place another distribution box 
in the Student Center marked "For 
Off-Campus Students Only. 

2. Place more copies in the Stu- 
dent Center and less copies in the 
dining halls. 

3. Increase the amount of cop- 
sideration to this problem will be 
greatly appreciated. 


C. R. "Chuck" Fulco 

Should we allow ourselves to be 
deceived into believing that we can 
trust the Communists?" I hope not. 

I also hope that such assaults 
upon our beliefs will only serve to 
strengthen those beliefs.

Destruction of Freedom? 

Dear Mr. Editor: 

A writer of a column in your 
newspaper has, in the last two 
weeks, taken a swipe at all that 
many of us hold dear. 

Two weeks ago, there appeared 
in said column an article which 
suggested that there was solid 
proof in the Dead Sea Scrols that 
Christianity was an empty, mean- 
ingless religion and that Jesus of 
Naereth was just another student 
of an ancient Jewish sect. 

Then, last week, the same writer 
used one of the most beautiful 
and best loved teachings of the 
Jesus whom he discredited, to 
chide Americans for not accepting 
the Communists as beloved broth- 

How can anyone accept the com- 
parison of the Good Samaritan 
with the Communists? The Good 
Samaritan gave a helping hand 
and asked nothing in return. The 
Communists give a helping hand 
and take in return the mind, the 
body, and the soul. Chairman 
Kruschev, the recognized Party 
leader, has said, "We will bury 

This means bury everything, in- 
cluding; (1) Our religion, which 
teaches a love that the aforemen- 
tioned writer has used to suit his 
own purposes, and (2) our Ameri- 
can freedoms, one of which is Free- 
dom of the Press, which the writer 
has also used to suit his own pur- 

Let us ask ourselves: "Should 
we extend our Freedom of the 
Press to anyone who advocates ac- 
ceptance of those who would de- 
stroy that Freedom of the Press? 

Covering A Short Subject 

Dear Editor, 

Girls dress styles are like the 
stock market, they are constantly 
changing. This is a good idea be- 
cause one gets tired of seeing the 
same old thing week after week, 
month after month. 

And the knee-revealing dress 
seems to be slowly going out of 
style (on the NSC campus anyway). 
It is not that we boys mind the 
short dresses, but our objection is 
to the way it is being "modeled" 
by our co-eds. 

The majority of the girls that 
choose to wear this wonderful type 
of dress or skirt seem to be in a 
state of embarassment while they 
are with a group of the opposite 
sex. They are constantly tugging 
at the hem of their dress trying to 
cover their knees. 

This is physically impossible be" 
cause it will not even cover their 
knees while they are standing! Yet 
they keep pulling and trying in 
vain to hide those lovely knees 
behind the tables while they are 
eating in the dining halls. 

This is a rather difficult task. 
If these girls only knew they were 
receiving more attention due to 
the futile attempt than by letting 
the scenery glow, they would eith- 
er start wearing longer dresses or 
give up this "I am not letting you 
see my knees attitude." 
Just Noticing 


Dear Editor: 

During an interview with a mem- 
ber of the NSC Assembly Com- 
mittee this week, I was asked to 
say something, through the "Cur- 
rent Sauce," to the students who 
walk out during assembly pro- 

Does such behavior show our 
guests that students on the North- 
western campus seek well-rounded 
personalities and want to be in- 
formed on world situations? Hard- 

It is the privilege of every stu- 
dent here to attend the all-college 
assemblies. Classes are dismissed 
so that students may hear some 
of the best speakers and most in- 
formed men and women, in their 
areas of specialization, in the coun- 
try. Then why do students come 
for the introduction, then leave 
as the speaker begins his address? 
We are termed "ill bred" by those 
who watch. 

The Committee has reminded us 
that there are other assemblies 
scheduled and we are asked to 
brush up on our manners, and act 
like scholars instead of idiots.

dentals which will not be men- 
tioned here. 

On the brighter side of things, 
we do have: (1) study rooms (but 
without furniture and with lights 
that won't work) (2) a beautiful 
dance floor (which is not for danc- 
ing, but is our unfinished living 
room), (3) a kitchen (but with- 
out a stove, a refrigerator, sink, 
etc. — in fact it has only a sign on 
the door which says "Kitchen"), 

(4) beds in some of the rooms' 
which are bolted to the floor (this 
is an HONORS dorm. Don't you 
TRUST us?), (4a) scraped knuck- 
les from making up the beds be- 
cause they're bolted too close to 
the walls, and (5) showers and lav- 
oratories with running water which 
alternately freezes and scalds you, 
(5a) a phobia of showers as one 
result of many burns, (5b) dirty 
hair because we're terrified to 
wash it. 

We realize that Louisiana is a 
new dorm, but it is open and there- 
fore should be furnished with the 

However, let's not be too hard 
on the ones who are responsible. 
They are trying. Since school 
started, mainly in the last three 
weeks, we have been given, in the 
order of their listing, the following 
things: (1) Venetian blinds (and 
a grand day it was when we could 
see daylight!), (2) pay telephones 
(but hidden, with no signs telling 
us where they are), 3 doorknobs 
on the doors to the suites (but 
they have a nasty habit of locking 
people in), (4) shower curtains, 

(5) desk chairs, and (6) pencil 

Don't get us wrong — we're more 
grateful than you know for these 
additions — especially the shower 
curtains and pencil sharpeners. 
But we still feel neglected. As an 
honors dorm, people expect us to 
have a dormitory that's a little 
special. Some of us were very em- 
barrassed to have open house dur- 
ing Mom and Dad day. We had 
the prettiest, BAREST rooms on 
campus. However, we don't care 
about having special privileges — 
we'd just like to have the same 
privileges other upperclassmen 
dorms enjoy. We'd really like iron- 
ing boards (and I quote the AWS 
regulations we're having a hard 
time obeying: "No ironing in the 
room"), but most of all we'd like 
the temperature of the water in 
our showers regulated. We're tired 
of being scalded, and we feel we 
have been neglected long enough. 


The Pioneers 

Still Pioneering 

Dear Editor: 

This year Natchitoches is 250 
years old and Northwestern is 80 
years old, but, in the great 
tradition of our predecessors we 
girls in Louisiana Hall are still 
pioneering. Our building is beauti- 
ful — but rather bare. 

We have: (1) no chairs, tables, 
ashtrays or drapes for our living 
room, (2) no ironing boards, (3) 
no television sets, (4) no sewing 
machines, (5) no place to put our 
names on our doors, (6) no night 
tables, (7) no desk lamps, (8) no 
trash cans, (9) no breadspreads,

New Frontieristic 

This protest letter is in response 
to the "new Frontieristic" propo- 
sal now before the Student Coun- 
cil. We refer, of course, to 
the "funding-of-the-student-activity- 
fees-surplus-bill as presented by J- 
O. Charrier. If passed this proposal 
will place in complete control of 
the Student Council (1) the "Cur- 
rent Sauce" (2) the "Potpourri" 
(3) the drma department plays. 

The complete control of the 
purse strings of a publication con- 
stitutes control of its editorial com- 
ment and makes it only a vehicle 
of this power group. 

Already, it must be noted that 
the educational policies of our pub- 
lications are controlled to a large 
extent by the present administra- 
tion and anymore control, how- 
ever small, would constitute a dic- 
tatorship in our publication's edi- 
torial comments. 

We appeal to the student coun- 
cil chosen by "US" to represent 
us, to think of the far reaching con- 
sequences that this bill could pos-

There Is Room For Improvement 

Many persons are employed by Northwestern State Col- 
lege in an effort to keep our campus beautiful. They work 
efficiently for the most part, and it is common knowledge that 
NSC's is one of the most attractive campuses in Louisiana. 

Recently our entrance has been beautified, we have added 
more and better buildings, and the Natchitoches Parish 
Chamber of Commerce has taken steps to clear up Utter 
around us. In a letter to the "Sauce," Jimmy Long, president 
of the Chamber, stated: "The Chamber of Commerce Board 
of Directors would like to suggest that we become cognizant 
of the litter around our town. . .we suggest. . .that soft drink 
dispensers might put up signs to the effect of prosecution of 
litter offenders." We at the "Sauce" feel that the suggestion 
is a good one. 

But scattered soft drink bottles are not the only detraction 
'rom our campus. Near the new beach on Chaplin's Lake, where 
the Texas and Pacific Railroad has a side track, old paper bags, 
tin cans, and other miscellaneous items are scattered in abund- 
ance. This is the "eye sore" of our campus, and is especially 
unattractive since it is near a much-used entrance to North- 

Our grounds "keepers" deserve much praise, for NSC has 
a neat and well-kept campus in other areas. Still, however, 
there is room for improvement. 

We Say Thanks 

This year the "Sauce" has received much cooperation from 
department heads and officials at Northwestern. Clubs have 
been prompt in submitting articles for publication in the paper, 
and for the most part have been a great aid in getting the paper 
out on time with as complete coverage as has been presented. 

Of course improvement is possible in both areas — the 
submitters and ours — but we express appreciation to those 
who have phoned our office with reports, or have sent infor- 
mation for our writers. This is essential for a representative 

We receive numerous complaints when our coverage ap- 
pears slanted to certain groups, or our paper does not meet 
approval on grounds of incorrect names, distasteful make-up, 
etc. These will help us to see our shortcomings, and to make 
less mistakes in the future. 

In general, responseto this year's paper has been good] 
we have received compliments and discompliments, and wish 
for continued review. We will be a better paper if NSC stu- 
dents and staff alike set us straight on certain matters, and 
give us information on goings-on.

Letters To The Editor 

Yep, the "Current Sauce" likes to get letters to the editor 
but we ask your help. This is a student newspaper and when 
students have views which they feel should be aired, a letter 
is a good way to do it. 

Please keep letters short and to the point, but at the same 
time cover the subject well. All letters must be typed double- 
spaced. Letters should be signed, but names will be withheld 
irom publication upon request. 

Let us hear from you. 




Facts, Views, Opinions 
by J. Vidmar 


He concentrated on not stepping 
on the cracks of the sidewalk, 
watching each foot advance and re- 
treat as if it had a wall of its own. 
Every little window in the sterile, 
concrete dormitories towering 
above and beyond him emitted the 
bluish-green glow of a telescreen, 
holding each its captives as secure- 
ly as if they were physically bonded 
with chains. He kept his eyes on 
the cracks, while his thoughts gam- 
boled about, jumping from place 
to place, undisciplined. 


He took his hands out of his 
rumpled pants' pockets and went 
to attention, six wrinkles in his 
chin. He recognized two black, 
badge-spotted uniforms of the Ci- 
tizens' Protectors approaching him 
at a leisurely pace from across the 
shadow-splattered street. 

"Classifications", the shorter one 

"Citizen Benedict Cain, grade 
E-4, Proofreader for the Dep't of 
Truth", he answered stiffly. 

"At Rest, Citizen. What are you 

"Walking, sir." 

"I see that you bloody fool," 
barked Short. "Where are you go- 
ing and what is your purpose?" 

Hesitantly, reluctantly, he an- 
swered, "I wasn't going anywhere 
sir. I was feeling. . .anxious, and 
then I had an impulse to just go 
walk and walk as far as I could." 

The Citizens' Protectors looked 
knowingly at each other, and then 
the taller one spoke into his wrist- 
crystal. At length, he looked up 
and nodded to Short. 

The Asst. Judge of Justice, 3rd 
District Court of Mercy, leafed dis- 
interestedly through the long and 
detailed report on Citizen Cain, 
grade E-4, initialed it, and then 
spoke into his desk recorder, "Ci- 
tizen Benedict Cain, case number 
4573.9, was stopped while he was 
walking late at night for no avowed 
reason. Questioning showed that he 
did this on impulse, showing lack 
of respect for the established tra- 
ditions of the Citizen norm. We 
have adjudged his condition to be 
a Situational Maladjustment Re- 
action and recommend that he is 
too unstable for his present securi- 
ty rating. We further recommend 
that he be retired to the North- 
western Institute of Mental Aber- 
ration for treatment. 

Two years, eight months, three 
weeks, and five days later, Citizen 
Benedict Cain, grade E-4, scratched 
onto the wall of his cell, "Open 
Sesame. . .1 want to get out!" 

You'll remember that last week's 
earthy installment, Sam met Gre- 
nelda and promised to fall in love 
with her if she was an English ma- 
jor. She was, and he did.

Yes, we were lost in love and

mention the profound thinking that 
went on. 

Many times we would ride down 
to the riverbank on a cold evening 
in my Volkswagen, park and think

About three years ago Allen 
Drury published "Advise and Con- 
sent," a novel which concerned it- 
self with the limit of the moral 
use of power by the higher-ups in 
Washington. The book made the 
best-seller list and stayed there be- 
cause Mr. Drury's characters were 
realistic, his dialogue good, and his 
plot and thesis basically strong. 
This does not mean to say that the 
story was an accurate account of 
life in Washington, but it was a 
good book. 

Now he has a new book, set this 
time in the United Nations. In this 
work, "A Shade of Difference," 
several of the major characters in 
"Advise and Consent" reappear, 
giving a pleasing continuity. But 
the emphasis of "A Shade of Dif-

of power, but morality and civil 

Once again powerful characters 
and deep emotions are created and 
displayed for the reader. The in- 
dividuals concerned in the story 
find that it is most difficult to be 
reasonable about race, for it is 
much easier to adopt the stance 
taught by history or to take the 
role of revolutionary than to search 
for a true solution. 

The climax of the book is drama- 
tic, the dialogue good. The analy- 
sis of the U.N. is, this reviewer be- 
lieves, accurate. The only criticism 
is that Mr. Drury loves to have his 
characters analyze their motives 
and reflect on them at great length. 
Analysis of motives is necessary in 
any book concerned with morals 
and ethics, but not at this great 
length. The reader can solve this 
problem by skimming these para- 
graphs when they become tedious 
and pick up the dialogue when it 

Do this and you will have a 
very enjoyable book.

McNeese kept its hopes alive for 
a perfect season last Saturday by 
knocking off Northwestern by a 
score of 21-13. They had a tough 
job of it though as NSC held the 
Cowboys for three quarters. This 
loss has ended the chance for an- 
other GSC championship, but if 
you can't come in first, second is 
the next best thing. Just because 
you will not have a championship 
club this year doesn't mean that 
your job of supporting the Demons 
is over. 

This week the Demons travel to 
Lafayette to take on the Bulldogs of 
Southwestern. In talking to stu- 
dents around the campus, there 
seems to be a lot of them planning 
to make this trip. 

This is a good thing, as a few 
people in the stands at another 
college can make all the difference 
in the world. Talk it up around 
your friends to attend this game 
so that Northwestern State College 
can be well represented in Cajun 

It was another bad week for 
football predictions last week. 
Mainly because of upsets, upsets, 
and more upsets. Among these up- 
sets were Miss. State over Auburn, 
Rice over Arkansas, and Southeast- 
ern over La. Tech. 

The yearly average dropped 
a little bit as I hit on only six out 
of 10. This brings the total to 34 
right and 16 wrong for a .680 ave- 
rage. This looks like another week 
to quit on but here goes another 

NSC (7) over Southwestern — 

Angry Demons take revenge out 
on Cajuns after losing close one 
to Cowboys of Lake Charles. 

McNeese (13) over Southeastern 
— Cowboys lasso Lions as they go 
on their way to a perfect season 
and a GSC Championship. 

Southern Mississippi (7) over 
La. Tech — Once again Bulldogs 
bark is worse than their bite. 

Northeast (6) over Delta State 
— Indians are on the war path as 
they go for three in a row on the 
Indian reservation. 

Mississippi State (7) over LSU — 
Bulldogs of Mississippi prove that 
their bite is worse than their bark 
as they post their second straight 

Mississippi (35) over Tennessee 
— Another tough one? 

Tulane (6) over Vanderbilt —

record breaking season with two 

Texas (14) over TCU— Long-

Alabama (7) over Georgia Tech 
— Tide warnings are out for all

Demons To Battle Bulldogs Saturday; 
Both Teams Having Losing Season 

by Jerry Brill, 
Sauce Sports Editor 

Northwestern's mighty Demons 
are hoping to get back on the win^ 
ning tracks this week as they travel 
to Lafayette for the annual battle 
with the Bulldogs of Southwestern. 
The Demons dropped a close one 
to McNeese last Saturday but 
showed that they are capable of 
playing a good game of ball. 

Southwestern posts a record that 
is about the same as the Demons. 
The Bulldogs are 3-4 while they 
are 0-3 in the conference. The Bull- 
dog wins have come over Hardin- 
Simmons, Tampa, and Louisiana 

The Demons must win this one 
in order to tie the series between 
the two teams. Southwestern leads 
the series with 26 wins while North- 
western has won 25. The two teams 
have three ties. 

Last Year 

In last year's action the Demons 
came out on top of a 20-0 victory. 

The Demons throttled the Bulldogs 
on the ground and in the air, stop- 
ping QB Lindsey Landry and HB 
Bert Resweber, USL best. Half- 
backs Kenny Thompson and Glenn 
Talbert and fullback Bobby Parker 
tallied for NSC. The Demons were 
able to tear out 349 yards rushing 
while giving up only 52. 

The Demons will be depending 
on the services of their big tackle 
John Wayne Odom. Odom played 
his best game of the season as he 
was in on numerous tackles and 
was not taken out of the plays very 

Also going for the Demons will 
be Al Dodd. Dodd has shown fine 
defensive ability as he has inter- 
cepted eight passes and ran them 
back for a total of 78 yards. 

This is a must game for the De- 
mons as they must win in order to 
finish above the five hundred mark. 
A loss would also ruin their chance 
for a second place finish. 


western this week in Lafayette are Kenny Guillot, James 
Aymond, and Herbie Smith. Guillot has been used mostly 
as a substitute but has shown fine ability. Aymond has a 
touchdown under his belt, while Smith has shown that 
he is capable of quarterbacking the ball club.

Northwestern State's Demons 
threw a scare into the McNeese 
Cowboys and led the nationally 
ranked 'Pokes 13-7 after three 
quarters before the visitors rallied 
to win by 21-13 Saturday night in 
Demon Stadium. 

The Gulf States Conference teams 
battled on even terms in the first 
half, although the Cowboys threat- 
ened twice. Interception specialist 
Al Dodd grabbed off an aerial in 
the end zone to stop one drive, and 
a missed field goal gave the ball 
to NSC on another instance. 

McNeese kept its perfect slate 
with the win, while the Demons 
absorbed their fifth defeat in eight 
games, and dropped to one win and 
two losses in GSC play.

Odom Gets Award 
For Third Week 

Winner of the Alonzo Stagg A- 
ward for his services against the 
McNeese Cowboys is Sammy Joe 
Odom, linebacker for the North- 
western State College Demons. 0- 
dom played his regular great game 
as he was all over the field. This 
makes the third time that he has 
been chosen for the award. 

Players chosen to this weeks 
honor roll were John Odom and 
Ken Hood. Odom was elected to 
the offensive honor roll while 
Hood was chosen to the defensive 
honor roll. 

Players receiving the Star A- 
wards were Ross Gwinn and Tom 
Mitchell for their recovery of 
fumbles, Al Dodd for his pass in- 
terception, Sammy Odom for his 
blocking of a McNeese punt, and 
Claude Patrick for his scoring on 
this blocked punt. 

NSC-USL Winner 
To Get Trophy 

Starting this year with the North- 
western State College-University of 
Southwestern football game tomor- 
row night, a Blue Key trophy, co- 
sponsored by the two schools will 
be awarded to the winning team at 
the conclusion of the contest. 

Made of silver, the trophy will 
be 19 inches high with a modeled 
football at the top. On the base will 
be a plaque on which will be in- 
scribed the dates and the scores of 
the games from this date on. 

Taking it's place among such 
other awards as Chief Caddo and 
the NSC-Tech flag, this trophy will 
become a symbol of the oldest foot- 
ball rivalry in the Gulf States Con-

maxed by a touchdown pass from 
Richard Guillory to Robert Young. 
Guillory kicked the point after for 
a 7-0 Cowboy advantage. 

With 3:58 remaining in the per- 
iod, All-American center Sammy 
Joe Odom roared through to block 
Tommy Thompson's punt at the 
Cowboy 26, and fullback Claude 
Patrick picked up the pigskin and 
raced into the end zone for the TD. 
Ed Horton missed the PAT, and it 
was McNeese 7-6. 

Following the kickoff Thompson 
fumbled on the first play from 
scrimmage and Tom Mitchell re- 
covered for the Demons at the vi- 
sitors' 32. 

Patrick Scores 

Donald Beasley connected with 
Kenneth Hood on a third and nine 
situation to give the Demons a first 
and goal at the two. Patrick was 
stopped for no gain, then bull- 
ed in for the score. Horton con- 
verted this time and NSC was out 
in front, 13-7 going into the final 

The lead was short-lived, how- 
ever, as McNeese moved 63 yards 
in nine plays for the go-ahead TD. 
The big play in the drive was a 41 
yard pass from Guillory to Charles 
Anastasio. Thompson got the final 
two yards on a keeper and Guillory 

toed the conversion to make it 

McNeese scored the last touch- 

down with 6:25 left in the game, 
when Guillory hit Earl Hicks on a 
61 yard scoring pass. Again Guill- 
ory made good the kick, and NSC's 
dreams of an upset were over. 

The Cowboys forced the Demons 
to punt after the kickoff, then ran 
the clock out for the victory.

Stevens Assists 
Parish Farmers 

Melvin Stevens, assistant pro- 
fessor of agronomy at Northwest- 
ern State College, recently con- 
ducted a research program con- 
cerning the problem of crop growth 
in Natchitoches Parish. Steven said 
the need for the research was 
brought to his attention by farmers 
throughout the Natchitoches area. 

Other parishes along the Red 
River basin consistently produced 
higher yields of cotton than did 
Natchitoches Parish. Stevens work- 
ed to determine the cause of lower 
yields and to aid in teaching some 
of his agronomy courses. 

Stevens completed a planned 
program which was submitted to 
one of the major agricultural chem- 
ical companies in order to obtain 
the proper materials needed. Var- 
ious soil samples were taken and 
sent to LSU for complete study 
and evaluation. 

The research determined that de- 
ficiency symptoms were evident in 
the following: nitrogen, phosphor- 
ous, potassium, copper, boron, cal- 
cium, sulfur, magnesium, iron, 
manganese, zinc, molyfdenum, and 
all micronutrients. Since this was 
an exceptionally dry year and 
yields were high, the results are 
not completely inclusive. 

Also, a study of the various her- 
bicides and insecticides was under- 
taken. Assisting with the studies 
were Lanny Pulling and Frank 
Waltmen, senior agronomy stu-

Students Asked: " What Makes A Good Teacher?" 

by Elease Patton 

What makes a good teacher? 
According to nine outstanding pro- 
fessors of the faculty of North 
Texas State University at Denton, 
a good teacher possesses numer- 
ous outstanding qualities. These 
include the ability to procure the 
respect of the students, liveliness 
of voice and manner, acting ability, 
being overprepared, making a 
course interesting, the ability to 
admit when he is wrong, keeping 
on the student's level of under- 
standing, interest in the students, 
variety in classroom procedures 
and devotion to the teaching pro- 

Fourteen Northwestren State 
College students were asked, 
"What makes a good teacher?" 
Here are their replies. 

teacher is one who is able to get 
over to the student what he is try- 
ing to teach in terms that the stu- 
dent can understand. A good tea- 
cher is also impartial. I definitely 
feel that a teacher should have a 
neat appearance." 

CAROLYN BREWER:'! think a 
good teacher is one that is devoted 
to his subject and especially to 
teaching. A good teacher is one 
who varies lesson plans to keep 
the students interested." 

CAROL STONE: "A good teach- 
er should have a good sense of 
humor. He must be able to make 
the subject interesting and to pre- 
sent the work at the level of under- 
standing of his students."

NSC Blood Machine 
Helps Save Child 

The Bacteriology Department of 
Northwestern State College did 
what it could to help physicians at 
Confederate Memorial Hospital in 
Shreveport last week in their ef- 
fort to supply seven-year-old Dan- 
ny King with the platelet serum 
he needs to stay alive. 

The department responded to a 
call by the hospital's blood bank 
Tuesday evening by sending its 
refrigerated ce'ntrifuge<, one of 
four or five such machines in the 

Even though the machine was not 
precisely what was needed, it was 
thought that it could aid in process- 
ing the serum by concentrating 
it. The particular machine re- 
quired was imported from Connec- 
ticut and set into operation last 

Body Destroys Platelets 

Danny, now improving, is the 
victim of a blood disorder in which 
the body destroys the bloood plate- 
lets which makes it nectssary that 
he be given the serum of concen- 
trated platelets. The problem was 
that the blood had to be sent to 
Tyler and processed, then returned 
to Shreveport to be administered 
to the patient. 

According to Dr. Rene J. Bien- 
venu, Jr., associate professor and 
head of the Department of Bac- 
teriology at Northwestern, who as- 
sisted in setting up the NSC ma- 
chine, the blood bank of Confede- 
rate Memorial purchased the exact 
refrigerated centrifuge they need- 
ed with the surplus from the Sabin

BRIAN McCOY: "In lecturing, 
a good techer doesn't go exactly by

lecture interesting and thus keep

GINGER DAY: "I think a good 
teacher is exact and firm in stan-

201 East Third at Keyser 

0a Campus 


(Author of "Rally Round the Flag, BoysV. 
and "Barefoot Boy With Cheek.") 


I am now an elderly gentleman, full of years and aches, but 
my thoughts keep ever turning to my undergraduate days. This 
is called "arrested development." 

But I cannot stop the healing tide of nostalgia that washes 
over me as I recall those golden campus days, those ivy-covered 
buildings (actually, at my college, there was only ivy : no bricks), 
those pulse-tingling lectures ou John Dryden and Cotton 
Mather, the many friends I made, the many deans I bit. 

I know some of you are already dreading the day when you 
graduate and lose touch with all your merry classmates. It is 
my pleasant task today to assure you that it need not be so; 
all you have to do is join the Alumni Association and every year 
you will receive a bright, newsy, chatty bulletin, chock-full of 
tidings about your old buddies. 

Oh, what a red-letter day it is at my house, the day the 
Alumni Bulletin arrives ! I cancel all my engagements, take the 
phone off the hook, dismiss my resident osteopath, put the 
cheetah outside, and settle down for an evening of pure pleasure 
with the Bulletin and (need I add?) a good supply of Marlboro 

Whenever I am having fun, a Marlboro makes the fun even 
more fun. That filter, that flavor, that yielding soft pack, that 
firm Flip Top box, never fails to heighten my pleasure whether 
I am playing Double Canfield or watching the radio or knitting 
an afghan or enjoying any other diverting pursuit you might 
name— except, of course, spear fishing. But then, how much 
spear fishing does one do in Clovis, New Mexico, where I live? 

But I digress. Let us return to my Alumni Bulletin and the 
fascinating news about my old friends and classmates. I quote 
from the current issue: 

"Well, fellow alums, it certainly has been a wing-dinger of a 
year for us old grads ! Remember Mildred Cheddar and Harry 
Camembert, those crazy kids who always held hands in Econ II? 
Well, they're married now and living in Clovis, New Mexico, 
where Harry rents spear-fishing equipment, and Mildred has just 
given birth to a lovely 28-pound daughter, her second in four 
months. Nice going, Mildred and Harry ! 

"Remember Jethro Brie, the man we voted most likely to 
succeed? Well, old Jethro is still gathering laurels! Last week 
he was voted 'Motorman of the Year' by his fellow workers in 
the Duluth streetcar system. 'I owe it all to my brakeman,' 
said Jethro in a characteristically modest acceptance speech. 
Same old Jethro ! 

"Probably the most glamorous time had by any of us old 
alums was had by Francis Macomber last year. He went on a 
big game hunting safari all the way to Africa ! We received many 
interesting post cards from Francis until he was, alas, acci- 
dentally shot and killed by his wife and white hunter. Tough 
luck, Francis! 

"Wilametta 'Deadeye' Macomber, widow of the late beloved 
Francis Macomber, was married yesterday to Fred 'Sureshot' 
Sigafoos, white hunter, in a simple double-ring ceremony in 
Nairobi. Many happy returns, Wilametta and Fred! 

"Well, alums, that just about wraps it up for this year. 
Buy bonds!"

Old grads, new grads, undergrads, and non-grads all agree: 
that good Richmond tobacco recipe, that clean Selectrate 
filter, have turned all fifty states of the Union into Marlboro 
Country. Won't you join the throng?

when the election comes up again 
in four years." 

During the question and answer 
period that followed his speech, 
Dr. Johnson said, "I'm against in- 
tegration 100 per cent." 

No Kennedy Man 

"I am not a Kennedy man, eith- 
er," he stated. 

After a discussion on the na- 
tion's foreign policy, which he con- 
demned, he said "Khruschev says 
he'll bury us. . .He couldn't bury 
a polecat!" 

"If elected, I am going to see to 
it that 18-year-olds can vote. If 
these young adults can be drafted, 
and die for their country, they are 
old enough to vote, in my opinion." 

"Ride with Clyde!" he advised 
his audience.

Charlton Lyons, Republican can- 
didate for governor, discussed his 
candidacy and touched on manage- 
ment of the news by the Kennedy 
administration in a speech to the 
"Current Sauce" staff Tuesday. 

Lyons, who changed his party 
affiliation after hearing Pres. Ken- 
nedy's speech at the Democratic 
convention and deciding that Ken- 
nedy's platform was a blueprint for 
socialism, lost the race for Con- 
gressman of the Fourth District by 
5,000. It has been stated that if 
Lyons opponent would have been a 
liberal, Lyons would have won the 

Some Service 

After defining a conservative as 
one who honors the constitution of 
the United States, Lyons discussed 
his candidacy, saying that he could 
not lose entirely because he would 
be rendering a service to the peo- 
ple by making them aware of the 
present situation in Louisiana. 

Lyons said that he expected to 
meet either Gillis Long, Chep Mor- 
rison or Robert Kennon in the Gen- 
eral Election. He also said that he 
would be able to work with a Dem- 
ocratic legislature. 

Concerning news management by 
the present administration, Lyons 
reviewed the responsibilities of the 
press and criticized the Kennedy 
administration for not allowing the 
people to know the complete truth; 
therefore not allowing them to 
make their own decisions. 

In closing, Lyons said that he 
would start Louisiana on the road 
to improving its economic and 
school system.

Fall Issue Of "Louisiana Studies 
Contains Articles By NSC Professors 

By Max Duggan 
Sauce Staff Writer 

The 1963 fall issue of Louisiana 
Studies, a quarterly published by 
the Louisiana Studies Institute of 
Northwestern State College, was 
released recently, according to Dr. 
Yvonne Phillips, professor and 
head of the department of Social 
Sciences and Institute board of di- 
rectors member. 

This issue contains two short 
articles by members of the North- 
western Social Studies Department. 
"The Shotgun House," by Dr. Phil- 
lips, presents the history and sig- 
nificance of this type of house 
found in Louisiana. It is illustrated 
with a photograph taken by Dr. 
George A. Stokes, board of direc- 
tors chairman, professor of geo- 
graphy, and dean of the School of 
Arts and Sciences.

or of anthropology. It is illustrated 
with a photograph taken by Thomas 
L. Hennigan, board of directors as- 
sociate member, assistant profes- 
sor of education, and director of 
NSC's audio visual service center. 
The article presents a description 
of certain pointed stone projectiles, 
probably spear heads, that indicate 
that "Texas tourists" visited Loui- 
siana 600-700 B.C. 

Three other articles appear in 
the issue which were not written 
by members of the Northwestern 
faculty. The first is "Occupational 
Composition of the 1950 Popula- 
tion of the Ten North Central Loui- 
siana Hill Parishes" by Dr. Robert 
O. Trout, professor' of sociology 
and geography at Louisiana Poly- 
technic Institute. He has also co- 
authored and produced a filmstrip 
series that deals with Louisiana 

Third Article 

"Louisiana R o m e o s of the 
1840's," by Dr. John Q. Anderson, 
head of the department of Eng- 
lish at Texas A & M College, is Dr. 
Anderson's third article to appear 
in Louisiana Studies. 

Another article appearing in the 
fall issue is "Hugh Oconor's In- 
spection of Nueva Vizcaya and Coa- 
huila, 1773" by Dr. Paige W. 
Christiansen, assistant professor of 
humanities at the New Mexico In- 
stitute of Mining and Technology 
at Socorro. His material for the ar- 
ticle came largely from his doctor- 
al research. 

Dr. Watson Attends 
Two Meets At LSU 

Dr. Ora V. Watson, professor of 
sociology at Nortfrwestern State 
College, attended two meets at 
Louisiana State University in con- 
nection with the LSU School of 
Social Welfare. The meetings start- 
ed last Thursday and ended on 

The first meeting Thursday was 
a work conference dealing with

Study Programs 
Open To Students 

Sophomores and juniors with at 
least a C plus average may apply 
for application in three one-year 
study programs in Paris, Vienna 
and Freiburg, West Germany. 

The Institute of European Stu- 
dies announced in Chicago that stu- 
dents have until June 5, 1964, to 
submit formal applications for the 
1964-65 programs. 

The Paris Honors program al- 
lows qualified liberal arts students 
the opportunity to study in their 
major field at the University of 
Paris and other Parisian schools. 
Enrollment in this study tour is 
limited to juniors maintaining a 
B average and few outstanding 

The "European Year" program 
at the University of Vienna offers 
a choice between German-taught 
and English-taught courses in his- 
tory, political science, literature, 
philosophy, psychology, economics, 
fine arts and other fields plus in- 
tensive German language instruc- 
tion and opportunitites to take reg- 
ular German-taught courses in the 
university. Applicants need not 
have had German, but must be 
juniors or sophomores with at least 
C plus averages. 

The third program offered is 
conducted for juniors with a B 
average. "Das Deutsche Jahr" at 
the 500-year-old University of 
Freiburg, in Germany's Black For- 
est, is conducted in political sci- 
ence, history, literature, philoso- 
phy, educational theory and psy- 
chology. All courses are conducted 
only in German. 

Each of these three programs 
includes two field trips into west- 
ern Europe with Institute leaders.

Defends Position 

Dear Editor: 

In defense of my position as 
chairman of the student council 
committee investigating the prac- 
ticality and fairness of our present 
financial system, I must say that 
the writers of the letter about 
"New Frontierism" are grossly mis- 
informed and have jumped to con- 

In effect, this committee is try- 
ing to determine whether or not 
the student is reaping $15 worth 
of benefits for the $15 that he pays 
as student body association fees at 
registration. Each student pays $11 
at the fall registration and $4 at 
the spring registration as student 
body association fees. Certainly, if 
a student is reaping only $10.50 
worth of benefits for the $11 he 
pays in the fall, 50c should be 
either subtracted from the associa- 
tion fee, refunded to the student, 
or spent wisely for the benefit of 
all students. The purpose of this 
committee is not to bring the 
"Potpourri" and "Current Sauce" 
under student council control as 
has been accused, but is to deter- 
mine whether the student "is get- 
ting his fifteen dollars worth," so 
to speak. 

This committee investigation in- 
cludes not only investigation of 
spending by the "Current Sauce" 
and the "Potpourri," but it also 
includes investigation of spending 
in the drama department, investi- 
gation of the operations of the stu- 
dent loan fund, and investigation 
of spending by the student council 

Needless to say, bringing any of 
the above under student council 
control is farthest from my mind 
and from the minds of the student 
council members. The committee 
has made no proposals of any kind 
as yet. The investigation is not as [ 
yet thorough and complete enough 
to make any proposals about any 
department which is spending the 
students' money, and therefore, 
no proposals have been made. Is 
this not enough proof in itself to 
prove that the accusations of de- 
sired student council control are 
false. This also points out how mis- 
informed the accusers are. 

The anonymous writers of the 
"New Frontierism" letter have in- 
troduced a viciousness into student 
life that I had felt didn't exist at 
NSC. A charge of "New Frontier- 
ism" against anyone, especially 
here in the South, is a very serious 
charge that should be backed up 
by fact. Perhaps, its authors ought 
to do a little more investigating 
before "mouthing off."

Useless Course 

Dear Editor, 

At the beginning of this fall se- 
mester I enrolled in a course dread- 
ed by most Northwestern students, 
Social Studies 450, commonly 
known as Communism. I am happy 
to report that I passed with a "B". 
But even though I made such a 
good grade, I do not know any more 
than the person who failed it.

750 FRONT ST. 

I, like most students, sat through 
the class bored to death. I did not 
get one thing out of it. After sit- 
ting through 12 lectures, reading 
all the required readings and study, 
ing my head off for both tests, I 
have not accomplished anything. 

If, after I am out teaching, I am 
approached by a person with a 
communistic idea I would not be 
able to recognize such an idea as 
being communistic. That is how 
little I know about Communism. I 
do not even know the basic differ- 
ences between Communism and 
Americanism. I am unable to pro- 
tect myself from propaganda by 
unknown Communists. 

The objective of Social Studies 
450 is to teach young people the 
differences between Communism 
and Americanism, what Commun- 
ism stands for and how we can 
fight it. If students walk out of the 
class knowing as little as they did 
before they walked in, the whole 
purpose of the course is lost. 

Surely the instructors can find 
some other way to achieve their 
objective, for it is evident that 
they are failing. 

I have no solutions to the pro- 
blem — I am only a student. But I 
feel that this course does need re- 
organizing if our young people of 
today are to be taught what Com- 
munism really is and how they can 
distinguish communistic ideas. 
Thank you, 
Donna Carole Segari 

Irresponsible Thinking 

Dear Mr. Editor; 

In the last issue of the "Sauce," 
there appeared, in an opinionated 
column, a rather cryptographic 
story, which depicted a hero who 
is persecuted for innocently devi- 
ating from the "norms" set up by 

Perhaps the writer of the column 
is portraying himself as being per- 
secuted because everyone else has 
not accepted his "facts, views, opin- 
ions." He has tried to shame us for 
our narrow-mindedness in not 
agreeing with his attacks on some 
of our basic beliefs. Maybe he feels 
that our narrow-minded society has 
shut him up in the prison he speaks 
of in his story. 

I don't see how anyone who is 
given a weekly column in the news- 
paper to expound his beliefs can 
claim to be shackled by society. 

If he does feel that he is being 
persecuted for his cause, just what 
is his cause? He has used a shotgun 
attack, discrediting religious be- 
lief, political opinion, and patriot- 
ism, and he has neglected to indi- 
cate what he stands for, if he really 
does stand for anything. 

Does such irresponsible thinking 
deserve a column in the free press? 
Along with freedom goes responsi- 
bility. Does the column referred to 
display responsible writing? 

For anyone who feels imprisoned 
by our system, there is plenty of 
opportunity to try others. How- 
ever, there are other systems which 
are not quite so tolerant of criti- 
cism as our own.

For Shame! For Shame! 

It's amazing what some Northwestern students do for 

The college has recently spent over $1,500 improving the 
main entrance to NSC; the college does make efforts to give 
students something of which to be proud. Some have rejected 
these efforts, however, and as the picture shows, do not exactly 
show appreciation. 

The picture, taken last week, shows the tire tracks where 
someone drove through the sign and out by the newly con- 
structed fountain. 

Perhaps the college should give up; their cause appears 
hopeless. We are not adults as they suspect and our actions 
do not make us worthy of a neat and attractive campus. 

But let us not go overboard with our complaints against 
the student body. Some of us do take pride in our surroundings; 
the harm of one should not dim the picture of the whole. To 
us it does not, but to onlookers who know us only as a group, 
an institution, we are sometimes the picture of educated im- 

Often we complain of being given too little control over 
campus activities and situations; but why should an administra- 
tion trust a juvenile student body — or a student body which is 
partially composed of juveniles — to handle campus affairs in 
an efficient manner? 

We can not pick at random the ones who do the damage 
and shadow our public image as an institution. This is sad, for 
if we could reprimand the jokers personally, and if the ad- 
ministration could locate the youngster(s) who are responsible 
for undoing a costly job, perhaps an end could be made to their 
undoing and doing. This is virtually impossible, however, and 
we all take the blame for our campus pranksters' actions. We 
shelter them in the fold of us all though through no choice of 
our own. 

Northwestern workmen will have to return to the en- 
trance — only last month newly landscaped and leveled — and 
relevel the entrance to cover a single pair of misplaced tracks. 

Let's wield our way through this adolescent stage and at 
least try to refrain from childish stunts which mar our campus, 
our reputation, and our chances for more voice in affairs of 
the college.

Last week, you'll remember that 
Sam and Grenelda suffered the 
first crisis in their relationship. 
Instead of just thinking profound 
thoughts occasionally on a date, 
they were doing it all the time. 
Grenelda wanted to make out once 
in a while, but she found that Sam 
had a one track mind. All he want- 
ed to do was think profound 

Under the Apple Tree, or

As we drove out of the drive-in 
theatre, Grenelda began combing 
her hair. "Where are we going to- 
morrow night?" said she. 

"I must study tomorrow," said 
I, "I am having a test on pidgin 
English Lit. 405 and I am failing 
the course, because we no longer 
study and think profound 

"Well, if that's the way you 
think of me, merely as a tool to 
pass English, you can just find 
someone who is loose with their 
profound thinking, and will think 
profound thoughts all the time 
with you," said she. 

"Are you suggesting that we 
break up?" said I, choking up 

"I wasn't," said she, "but since 
you seem to want to, you can have 
your Thesaurus back." 

"But Grenelda," said I, "I don't 
want to break up, I just want us 
to be like we were before." 

"Like we were before? And 
think profound thoughts all the 
time? Never! Here is your Thesau- 
ras, your pocketsized 'THINK' sign, 
and all of your profound thought 
note cards. It is over for us. Good^

and extricated herself from my

Huddie Ledbetter: "The Immor- 
tal Leadbelly." Mount Vernon 
MUM141, Sterio-$1.00. 

"Leadbelly is a hard name and 
the hard name of a harder man. . ." 
Woody Guthrie's description of 
Leadbelly is easily shown to be 
true on the recently released "The 
Immortal Leadbelly." 

Hardly anyone will dispute the 
idea that Huddie Leadbetter's voice 
is not pretty, it is rough and grainy. 
It has the sound of the earth and 
the people of the soil, whom he 
knew and sang about. 

If the core of the earth could 
shout, it would sound like Lead- 
belly's wail. His nasal twang can 
express every emotion from the 
unhappy thoughts of childhood to 
the mornful chant of a people 
oppressed crying for freedom. 

His ability to do blues numbers 
is shown in "Dekalb Blues," "Poor 
Howard," and "The Boll Weevil." 
The style of his 12 string guitar 
in every song is distinctively Lead- 
belly. "Ain't Goin' Down To The 
Well No Mo' " is done without any 
musical accompainment and has the 
quality of a religious chant. His 
story of his unhappy life in Shreve- 
port is told in "Fannin' Street." 

Leadbelly's life was tragic and 
his sorrow as well as the sorrow 
of his people is expressed in the 
words and music of the Leadbelly

by Robert Gentry 

There's an old political adage: 
Don't engage in a "squirting" con- 
test with a skunk. We try to follow 
this advise and hope that you will 
excuse us for departing from it 
this week. 

"Rocinante," a column of facts, 
views and opinions, was short lived. 
This week the ugly truth— plagiar- 
ism — was learned. 

Last week's column by this per- 
verted egotist, subtitled "Walk 
ing," coincided with a story en- 
titled "The Pedestrian" by Ray 
Bradbury which was COPYRIGHT- 
ED in 1951. 

It wsa copyrighted by Fort- 
nightly Publishing Company and 
reprinted BY PERMISSION of Ha- 
rold Matson Company on page 122- 
126 of a book titled "Adventures 
in American Literature," authored 
by John Gehlmann and Mary Rives 
Bowman. This is FACT. 

The Bible says, "And ye shall 
know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH 
shall make you FREE." Now that 
we know the TRUTH, we have set 
this "potentially great" columnist 
FREE from the "Current Sauce" 

This uncovering leads us to won- 
der just where he got his first two 
columns. (Thank God we only pub- 
lished three.) Apparently at first 
he thought he was as slick as a 
peeled onion, but now he finds that 
he's got a tiger by the tail. 

Earlier this week he brought to 
the "Sauce" office a very crude 
piece of writing entitled "The An- 
swer." We don't know where it 
came from. 

In our opinion, the piece was 
filthy and vulgar. It was the kind 
of work you would find in some 
type "girlie" magazine published 
for the illiterate reader. 

When we told this two-bit philo- 
sopher that we were not going to 
use such trash in a college paper 
of high standing, he threw a child- 
ish temper tantrum and with one 
swift turn, he vanished. 

Before his shirt tail had a chance 
to touch his back, he was in Cald- 
well Hall. Pres. Kyser is a busy man 
and we are sorry he was bothered. 
Needless to say, our bull of the 
woods got no satisfaction. 

Now we hear that he's going to 
start an off campus newspaper. 
More power to him we say, because 
competition always makes for bet- 
ter papers. 

And if this "erudite" scholar will 
come in person to the "Sauce" of- 
fice we will be glad to give him a 
donation to help start his paper. 

Again, dear reader, we are sorry 
to have made much ado about 
nothing, but it is very seldom that 
we engage in a "squirting" contest 
with a skunk. 

The surest sign of intelligence 
is often an "I don't know" answer. 

When Bill Dodd was on campus 
for a recent visit with the "Sauce" 
staff (remember he's a former 
sports editor of the paper) he 
opined (when he saw a boy and gal 
a-kissin' while parked alongside 
Chaplain Lake) "They use the lake 
for the same thing we used it for 
when I went to Northwestern (for 
kissin' gals, that is)." 

Have you heard about the wor- 
ried lady who wrote in to a state 
department as follows: "You have 
changed my little boy to a girl. 
Will this make any difference?" Ye 
Ed would say, ask the doctors in 

While we resent the allegation 
and defy the alligators (they said 
our football prognostigator on the 
Sauce is about as sharp as a basket- 
ball), we would remind all three 
of our readers that the cage season 
for the Demons does begin Monday. 

Ye Ed will see all you students at 
the game. 

When students pay registration

When I read "To Kill A Mocking- 
bird," several months ago, I came 
to the conclusion that I complete- 
ly agree with the people who se- 
lect the Pulitzer award winner. 

This is the most delightful book 
I have encountered in quite some- 
time. Harper Lee has brought forth 
a crowning achievement in the lit- 
erary field. Her description and hi- 
larity of Jem, Scout, and Dill are 
exquisite. She does what I think 
few others could, that of expressing 
herself completely as Scout. 

Those who haven't read the book 
but have seen the motion picture, 
by the same name, have still miss- 
ed a considerable part of the story, 
though the movie was an unusually 
good transferral from one media to 

Scout's performance as a "ham" 
at the Halloween carnival, and 
later on the way home, arouses 
such amusement that one must 
laugh aloud during its reading. Se- 
veral other incidents call for tears 
and for laughter from the emotion- 
al reader. 

Another facet of this remarkable 
novel is that of the rape trial of a 
Negro. This episode is offensive to 
Southern readers but Miss Lee 
deals with it in such a way that the 
actual trial is extraneous to the 
essential of the story. 

As anyone can plainly see this 
book is highly recommended by the 
writer of this review. It is a very 
worthwhile way to spend spare mo-

Roundballers To Open Season Monday 

USL LINEBACKER TOMMY KELLY (32) and Northwestern State end Roy Gentry (88) 
shake hands following the Bulldogs' 19-13 win over the Demons Saturday night in 
Lafayette. The triumph enabled Southwestern to gain possession of the USL-NSC Blue 
Key Cup award, presented to the winner of this ancient rivalry. Pictured at the presen-

Northwestern State College will 
open its basketball season for 1963- 
64 Monday night as they entertain 
the Southeastern Oklahoma Sav- 
ages in the first of two games. 
Game time is 7:30 p.m. 

Little is known about this year's 
Southeastern Oklahoma team but 
plenty is known about their coach, 
Bloomer Sullivan. This mentor is 
the fifth ranking coach in the na- 
tion. He has compiled a 26 year 
total of 591 wins and 179 losses 
for a .768 average. 

Coach Huey Cranford of the De- 
mons believes he will have an im- 
proved squad over last year. The 
team this year will have more 
depth, more bench strength.but no 
more height. 


Coach Cranford remains unde- 
cided about his starting lineup. It 
is probable though, that the quin- 
tet will be selected from Tommy 

Mathis, Sam Watts, Raymond Ar- 
thur, Billy Ray, Kenny Arthur 
and Bill Stokes. Last years leaders 
returning this year will be Tommy 
Mathis, Sam Watts, Emmett Hend- 
ricks and Billy Ray. 

Mathis is a senior who hails 
from Hanna. Last year he averaged 
17.5 points per game overall and 
18.2 per GSC contest. He scored 
437 to top all Demon scorers. 

Junior Sam Watts added 278 
points to the NSC total and had an 
average of 59.6% for field goal ac- 
curacy. His 66.7% average was 
good enough to rank him as one of 
the leaders in the GSC. He also 
pulled in an average of nine re- 
bounds per game. 

Sophomore Emmett Hendricks, 
Marthaville guard, hit 23 of 26 
free throw attempts to rank him 
as one of the leaders in the GSC. 

Billy Ray is the only other De- 
mon averaging over ten points per 

Demons Drop Fourth League Game To Southwestern 

By Rick Woodson 
Sauce Sports Writer 

Northwestern State's Demons 
dragged into the Gulf States Con- 
ference cellar along with the Uni- 
versity of Southwestern Louisiana 
when the Bulldogs beat NSC 19-13 
Saturday in Lafayette. 

The Demons dropped their fourth 
league game to go with one win, 
over Northeast State, and USL also 
is 1-4 in conference play. NSC is 
now 3-6 for the season. 

Fullback Bobby Parker led the 
Demon attack with 88 yards in 16 
carries, and Claude Patrick, full- 
back, got 48 on nine jaunts. Lonny 
Price was USL's top gainer with 
66 yards on 14 carries. 

USL opened the scoring in the 
second period when Wayne Walker 
punted only 21 yards from his 26 
to the 47. The Bulldogs moved from 
there in 12 plays and Bert Res- 
weber cracked over left tackle for 
the final three yards. 

Demons Move 

The Demons moved 79 yards in 
13 plays following the next kick- 

off. Patrick provided most of the 
yardage, along with a 15-yard pen- 
alty, to put the ball down to the 
USL one-foot line when the Ca- 
nines' line held. 

On the first play from scrim- 
mage Bill Bayard fumbled, and 
Claude Patrick recovered in the 
end zone for a Demon six pointer. 
Ed Horton's PAT attempt went 
wide, and it stood 7-6 after one 

Parker fumbled the football on 
the NSC 45 and the Bulldogs re- 
covered to give them another scor- 
ing opportunity. This time it took 
10 plays for 'Dogs to reach the end 
zone. With 5:23 remaining in the 
third stanza, Price leaped over 
right guard for one yard and the 
TD. Gerald Landry missed the kick 
for a 13-6 Demon deficit. 

Bulldogs Cash In 

After the ensuing kickoff another 
miscue provided the Bulldogs an 
other chance, and again they cashed 
it in. Halfback Jerry Burton hobbl- 
ed the ball after an eight yard 
pickup on the first play from scri-

~\the 'forbidden' fragrance, 

mmage, and Tommy Kelly of USL 
recovered on NSC's 32. 

Bill Bayrard got 23 yards to the 
seven and a first and goal. O'Neal 
Weber scored from the one on a 
keeper and a two-point conversion 
attempt failed. NSC then trailed 
by 19-6 after three quarters of 

Again NSC took the kickoff and 
moved for a touchdown. With Bur- 
ton, Parker, an 18 yard aerial from 
Donald Beasley to Roy Gentry get- 
ting the vital real estate, the De- 
mons moved 67 yards in 10 plays. 
Beasley threw for the TD to Gen- 
try, and Parker toed the point, 
with 13:52 remaining in the con- 

NSC failed to tally for the re- 
mainder of the evening, and thus 
USL had another occupant in the 
last spot of the GSC standings. 

BULLDOGS, BULLDOGS, everywhere, and not much 
room to run. This seems to be the story as Northwestern 
fullback Claude Patrick (33) tries to ramble through the 
line. Ed Horton (47) leads interference,

Demons To Battle Lions On Saturday 

By Jerry Brill 
Sauce Sports Editor 

The Northwestern State College 
Demons, straight from a loss at 
the hands of the Bulldogs from 
Southwestern, will have their 
hands full as they travel to Ham- 
mond Saturday to do battle with 
the Southeastern Lions. The Lions 
must win to keep their slim hopes 
alive for a tie for the GSC crown. 

Southeastern sports a better re- 
cord than that of the Demons as 
they are 4-3-1 compared to 3-6-0. 

Last years battle was one of the 
top small colleges battle in the 
nation as both teams were fight- 
ing for the championship. 

This game will be the final for 
10 seniors including ends K e n | 
Hood, Johnny Norman, and Roy 
Gentry, tackles Al Anding and 
John Odom, center Sammy Joe 
Odom, quarterback Herbie Smith, 
halfbacks Jerry Burton and Glenn 
Talbert and fullback G. W. Zach- 

The Demons will also be de- 
pending on the services of guards 
Lawrence Nugent and Kenny 
Guillot. These two players have 
shown fine ability as they have 
been on numerous tackles. Both 
are in their first year of varsity 
and seem to have a fine future in 
store for them

25 Participating 
In Swim Program 

Some 25 swimmers are current- 
ly participating in the 50 mile 
physical fitness swim program at 
the Natatorium. The program is 
designed to encourage swimmers 
to swim enough each day to in- 
sure some degree of physical fit- 
ness. To gain credit for the dis- 
tance swim, a swimmer must swim 
440 yards at one time. There are 
200 segments in 50 miles. There 
is no time limit on the length of 
time a swimmer may participate. 

When a participant completes 
the 50 miles, he is priviledged to 
wear the Red Cross 50-mile pin. 
The only person on the campus 
wearing this pin at the present 
time is William Simpson, who 
swam the distance last year when 
enrolled as a freshman. 

Director of the current physical 
fitness program is Joyce Hillard, 
assistant professor of physical ed-

Here I am from a trip to Lafay- 
ette with both good and bad re- 
ports. Among the good reports 
was the school spirit displayed by 
the NSC students and cheerleaders. 
Not only did they represent a 
fairly large number of students, 
but also outyelled in proportion 
the USL students. 

This is an excellent factor con- 
sidering that NSC had very little 
to yell about. Another good factor 
was the halftime show put on by 
some 27 bands. It was enough to 
take your breath away to hear 
all of the bands play the National 
Anthem, although it was rather 
easy to get your breath back when 
the band started playing "Home 
on the Range" with people in the 
stands singing it. 

The bands played it well enough 
but a better group of singers 
could be found. About the football 
game, there wasn't much to yell 
about as the Demon football team 
showed little as they fought it 
out with the Ragin Cajuns for 
last place. If the Demons lose next 
week, a miserable season will come 
to a close. A loss would put the 
Demons at 3-7. Certainly they are 
a better ball club than this. 

Well, it was another week to 
quit for predictions. Once again I 
hit on six out of ten for a.600 
average. This brought the seasons 
total to 40 right and 20 wrong for 
a .667 average. So here goes hoping 
for a week to be proud of, like 10 
out of 10. 

S'eastern (13) over Northwest- 

ern — Lions prove to be king of 
the jungle as in battle that could 
prove to be important. A tie for 
the Lions could give a tie to them 
for GSC while a loss for the De- 
mons could clinch last place. 

McNeese (28) over Southwest- 
ern — Cowboys romp and stomp 
over Cajuns from Lafayette. 

La. Tech (10) over Northeast — 
Canines from Ruston growl In- 
dians back to reservation in Mon- 

LSU (28) over Tulane— Even 
though the Greenies have an ex- 
cellent season of one win and one 
tie, Tigers of Baton Rouge end 
season on winning note. 

Ole Miss (14) over Miss. 
State — Rebel yells enough to 
scare bulldogs back to the dog- 

Arkansas (20) over Texas Tech 
— Porkers go wild over lose to 

Texas (24) over Texas A & 
M — Longhorns end season with 
perfect record as they prepare to 
go on to the Cotton Bowl. 

Auburn (13) Florida State- 
Could be an upset. 

Georgia Tech (10) over Geor- 
gia — Insects seem to have lost 
their stinger but swarm back to 
overtake Georgia. 

Rice (7) over TCU— Home 
field gives advantage to Owls from 

See you next week. 

Group To Study Organizations 

Dudley G. Fulton, head of the 
committee on organizations, re- 
ports that there have 1 been 43 ap- 
plications for charters to organi- 
zations, clubs and associations at 
Northwestern State College. 

The purposes and functions of 
the committee on organizations are 
to find which organizations exist, 
under charter, and to find a means 
of offering aid to the various ones. 

Constitutions and bylaws will be 
studied by the committee which 
consists of both faculty members 
and students. The committee will 
also decide which new groups will 
get charters. The aims and object- 
ives of new groups will be investi- 
gated also. 

Preparation for charter issuing 

was begun last week at a meeting 
where applications for charters 
were considered. The committee in- 
tends to encourage more emphasis 
of membership in organizations, 
and to determine which students 
are members and which students 
are not. Records of membership 
will be kept as statistics on each 
student attending NSC. 

Faculty members on the commi- 
ttee are Dr. Leonard Fowler, Dr. 
Marie Dunn, J. W. Johnson, Dr. 
Guy Nesom, and Mrs. Amy J. 

Student members are Sandra 
Joyce, Butch Chase, Roy Corn, Joe 
Butler and J. O. Cherrier.

Other Inaccuracies 

Dear Editor: 

After reading the article "Roci- 
nante" by J. Vidmar in the Nov. 1 
"Sauce," we would like to point 
out some inaccuracies in his work 
and some general points of agree- 

First, he sets the date of the dis- 
covery of the Dead Sea Scrolls as 
being 1945. "The Interpreters Bible 
Dictionary" in Volume A-D on page 
790 lists the year of discovery as 
1947. The celebrated Jewish his- 
torian, Flavius Josephus, mentions 
the Essenes as being a group of 
about 4,000 in number during the 
first century B.C. He also stated 
that they did not have a city or de- 
finate location for their sect group, 
but were a rather scattered socie- 

Instead of the teachings of Jesus 
paralleling the works of the Es- 
senes, we have documetation that 
proves his teachings came from the 
works of authors of Genesis, Exod- 
us, Psalms, Isaiah and Amos. It has 
long been known that many of the 
sayings of Jesus and many of his 
teachings have a close relationship 
to the Old Testament, and at times 
his works seem to be direct quota- 
tions from such a source. "Every 
clause in the Lord's Prayer was 
familiar to the rabbis of Jesus' day. 
In fact, a parallel may be found in 
Jewish literature for almost every 
statement in the Sermon on the 
Mount. For a brief but scholarly 
account, see Joseph Klausner: 
Jesus of Nazareth." (Belford, L. A. 
Introduction to Judaism) 

Jesus' Sermon on the Mount was 
not new in terms of words, but new 
in the methods used to present 
such a message. Thus, his message 
was good "news" because the aver- 
age man could understand Jesus 
the teacher, who sought him out. 

Mr. Vidmar states that little is 
known about Jesus between the 
ages of 12 to 30, and that because 
of this lack of knowledge, it can be 
imagined that Jesus lived or stu- 
died with the men in a Hebrew 
seminary because he was familiar 
with their scripture, or because of 
his association with Judas. Jesus 
belonged to the group of Zellots 
who hoped to defeat Roman rule in 
their land. If evidences of certain 
activities of Jesus during that per- 
iod of time are not availbale, then 
Mr. Vidmar should not hint that, 
his own pet ideas will do the job 
and that he can fill in the gaps at 

The act of Baptism was practiced 
by the Jews long before the Essene 
sect ever existed as the Qumran 
society. This ritual of Baptism is 
not new to the times of Jesus. Used 
in the context of Jewish faith and 
practice, "early Christians recog- 
nized the significant differences be- 
tween the Baptism of John and that 
of Christianity, and those who had 
only the former baptism were re- 
baptized (Acts 19:3-6). Jews do 
baptize, although they do not use 
the term, but the meaning is dif- 
ferent from that of Christian bap- 
tism." (Belford, L. A. Introduction 
to Judaism) 

Mr. Vidmar has made a glaring 
error in the study of the Biblical 
background if he quotes the Gos- 
pel of John, Chapter 1:19-20 as 
having been borrowed by John the 
Baptist from the Essene group. In 

this case, Mr. Vidmar, is guilty of 
misquoting scripture — or of taking 
scripture out of context, or of 
twisting a reference to fit the oc- 
casion. He failed to add the last 
part of John 1:23 which states, 
"as the prophet Isaiah said." (Holy 
Bible RSV) Thus, the scripture 
should read, " I am the voice of one 
crying in the wilderness, make 
straight the way of the Lord, as the 
prophet Isaiah, said." (Ibid) Also, 
parts of this quotation go gack to 
the Hebrew oral traditions in the 
Books of Law which were recorded 
much earlier and can be found in 
Exodus 23:20. Reference to Isaiah 
40:1-5 will show that the phrase 
uttered comes from the 7th and 
8th century B.C. and can be dated 
no later than the time of the "Great 
Unknown Prophet of the Exile," 
who lived in 600 B.C. (Williams, 
W. G. The Prophets: Pioneers to 

When one groups Judaism, 
Christianity, and Islam as religious 
groups having similar or the same 
religious orientation, one should 
have in mind that historically 
speaking Judaism came first, then 
Christianity and then Islam in that 
order. Islam borrowed heavily from 
the writings and teachings found 
in the Old and New Testaments 
and the leaders of Islam recognize 
Jesus as a great prophet, second 
only to Mohammed. 

We agree that all religions men- 
tioned hold some things in com- 
mon. It is in considering the addi- 
tional qualities, not held in com- 
mon with others, that the Christian 
way is set apart. 

We doubt if any person inter- 
ested in religion would question 
Mr. Vidmar's privilege and right 
to say what he did in the article, 
but we must insist that when he 
makes statements as fact about the 
Christian Faith, he should do so 
accurately and with documentation. 
We hope that as this is done, the 
value of honest religious belief will 
be maintained and responsible 
journalism will be done a great

Quality of Food 

Editor, , 
Current Sauce 

We would like to voice our com- 
plaint about the quality of the food 
in Bienville Dining Hall. In past 
semesters, there has usually been 
one or two edible meals per week. 
So far this semester, there has been 
approximately two edible meals; 
one served on Mom and Dad Day 
and the other served on Home- 

To us, this is indicative that 
when necessary the dining hall 
staff can prepare a decent meal. 
We are grateful that on these two 
occasions the staff was motivated 
by the knowldege that there would 
be present certain dignitaries such 
as alumni, state officials, and pa- 


The upperclassman were enter- 
tained by the freshmen members 
of the Euthenics Club last Thurs- 
day evening at 6:30 p.m. in the liv- 
ing room of the Home Economics 

President Jean Walker intro- 
duced the narrator of the even- 
ing, Joyce Lovitt. The freshmen 
girls gave the members a back- 
ward look into the costumes of the 
early settlers of Natchitoches 250 
years ago and continued through 
the present day. 

Baker's Town and Campus Bookstore

rents, and produced a meal that 
was edible. 

On these occasions the menu was 
not varied, but much more care 
was taken in the preparation and 
the result was certainly obvious to 
our taste buds. We sincerely wish 
that the staff would put forth the 
same effort all the time, after all, 
WE are the ones who must eat 
three meals a day at this "humble" 

Another complaint we would like 
to make public is that the dishes 
and eating utensils are many times 
dirty. For instance, the milk glasses 
at breakfast, occasionally have lip- 
stick left from the previous days 
supper; and the cereal bowls have 
dried cereal from a previous break- 
fast, crusted on the edges. We 
would appreciate it, if such "inci- 
dential" matters such as these were 
brought to the attention of the 
Bienville Dining Hall staff. 

In closing, we wish to register 
one other complaint. We hardly 
think that Christmas carols should 
be played two weeks before 
"Thanksgiving Holidays." Such has 
been the case, last week and this 
week. If this is indicative of a new 
policy, I guess we can look forward 
to such tuneful melodies as "April 
Showers," "In Your Easter Bonnet" 
and "In the Good Old Summer 
Time" during the days preceding 
Christmas holidays. 

We hope that the above criti- 
cisms will be taken as they were 
given, in a constructive context.

Student Council 

NOVEMBER 18, 1963 
The meeting was called to order 
by President Sonny Hargrove, roll 
was called and the minutes were 
read by the secretary. 

As the first order of business 
Pam Pepperman asked if milk 
machines were going to be placed 
in freshman dorms. It was reported 
that vendors did not like to place 
the machines in small dorms. The 
matter will be investigated. 

Bill Nance reported that the 
committee studying the immediate 
needs of the Black Knights had 
met with Leonard Miller. It was 
decided that the immediate need 
of the Black Knights amounted to 

Steve Blount raised the question 
as to whether we were to have a

finances had met, but as yet had 
made on the student loan fund

Pepperman suggested that the 
pond in front of Caldwell be 
cleaned out. 

Rodney Elkins asked that a new 
handle be put on the door of Bien- 
ville Dining Hall. 

Charrier raised the question as 
to why students were required to 
purchase meal tickets even though 
there was a crowded condition in 
the dining halls. A discussion fol- 
lowed. The question was raised as 
to why 5-day meal tickets could 
not extend from the Sunday eve- 
ning meal through the Friday noon 
meal instead of beginning with 
breakfast Monday and extending 
through the evening meal Friday. 
Randy Webb moved that the din- 
ing hall committee meet with Dean 
Nelken to solve the problem. Sec- 
onded by Chase. Motion passed. 

There being no further business 
Carol Givens moved that the meet- 
ing be adjourned. Seconded by

SLTA Christmas Party Planned 

The Student Louisiana Teachers' 
Association has slated its annual 
Christmas party for Dec. 19, fol- 
lowing the regular meeting of the 
group in Warren Easton Auditor- 
ium, according to Patricia Rogers, 
President of the Northwestern 
State College SLTA unit. 

Delegates from Northwestern to 
the annual convention of the Loui- 
siana Teachers' Association held on 
the Louisiana State College camp- 
us at Baton Rouge, returned after 
the Nov. 24 meet, and the SLTA 
group is now making plans for 
hosting the Louisiana Schools Ad- 
ministration conclave here on Dec. 

The conclave is centered around 
discussion of problems in school 
administration, and is expected to 
give NSC education majors deeper 

insight to meeting such problems. 

Numerous NSC SLTA members 
attended the Louisiana Teachers 
meet. The official delegation was 
composed of Dr. Walter Robinson, 
of the Industrial Education Depart- 
ment, Leonard Nichols, Dean of 
Men and Dr. John A. Jones, Dean 
of the School of Education. 

At the Dec. 19 meeting, group 
pictures for the Potpourri are 
scheduled to be taken. Miss Rogers, 
president, has urged girls to wear 
heels, and boys to wear suits for 
the picture taking. 

At the Nov. 19 meeting, Jimmie 
Dawn Stamper, primary education 
major, spoke to the group on 
"Goals for Tomorrow," and Harold 
Brown pointed out "Qualities of a 
Teacher." Both talks gave students 
ideas on expectations of today's 
and tomorrow's teachers.

ROTC Has Record Of Continuous 
Accomplishments Since Beginning 

high every year in other fields 
such as precision marching and 

Other cadet activities include an 
affiliate chapter of the Associa- 
tion of the U.S. Army and par- 
ticipation in rifle team matches, 
as well as the annual Military Ball,

pride in the ROTC. It may not

accomplishments are.

Sauce Staff Writer 

In September 1950, the Reserve 
Officers Training Corps under the 
command of Lt. Colonel James W. 
Bowman invaded Demonland to be- 
come a permanent fixture at North- 

At it's inception, the ROTC 
trained men in the anti-aircraft 
artillery field, but in 1954 an in- 
terim program was directed and 
complete transition to the General 
Military Science courses was ef- 
fected in June 1955. 

Four Commanders 

In the 13 years since it's birth, 
the ROTC has had four command- 
ers. They were Lt. Col. Bowman, 
Lt. Col. Orlando L. Greening, Lt. 
Col. Christian G. Kuehlke, and the 
present commander, Lt. Col. Lee 
E. James. 

Since the March enrollment of 
1952 the percentage of male stu- 
dents enrolled in ROTC has been 
reduced approximately 15 percent. 
During a school year an annual 
loss of ROTC students of ap- 
proximately 40-50 percent can be 
expected in the basic course due 
to academic failures, transfers to 
other schools and insufficient mo- 
netary means of the student to con- 
tinue the college curriculum. 
Not Mandatory 

Although there are only 200 stu- 
dents in the ROTC this year, it 
is well to note that NSC is the only 
state supported institution of high- 
er learning where the ROTC is 
not mandatory. In spite of this 
fact, the corps has fielded the 
nations best drill team-the Black 
Knights, which won over all com- 
petition in Washington D.C. in 
1960, and has continually ranked

37th Annual Event 
Slated Tomorrow 

Students of Northwestern State 
College will join with the citizens 
of Natchitoches tomorrow to open 
the 37th annual Natchitoches 
Christmas Festival in a funfilled 
day of entertainment and beauty, 
which might well be described as 
Mardi Gras in mineature. 

Tomorrow this small north Lou- 
isiana town on the Cane River 
blossoms into national notoriety 
as the literally thousands of multi- 
colored Christmas lights are turned 
on to transform the old French 
town into a 20th century fairy- 

An estimated 60,000 persons 
will visit Natchitoches with its iron 
lacework and brick covered Front 
St. during the holiday period. In 
the morning, visitors will be re- 
ceived at the old Lemee House on 
Jefferson St., one of the city's 
oldest structures, where coffee 
will be served from 10 a.m. to 12 

Parade Scheduled 

A parade is scheduled for 2 p.m. 
with 35 or more units expected to 
participate in the affair. Contin- 
uous entertainment will also be 
provided from the Fleur De Lis 
stage located on the river bank. 

AT 6 p.m., a historical narration 
on Natchitoches will be given by 
Weldon Walker, purchasing agent 
of NSC, and Norm Fletcher, KNOC 
news director, as a prelude to the 
annual fireworks display and turn- 
ing on of the Christmas lights 
which is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. 

Providing the entertainment 
during the daylight hours will be

NSC Students Asked Views On Harvard Regulation 

by Marie Bacque 
Sauce Staff Writer 

In recent years, clergymen, so- 
ciologists, as well as most people 
interested in the morals of society 
have been examining the moral 
attitude of its young people. They 
deplore the "looseness" of morals 
among college students. 

In 1952 Harvard promulgated a 
regulation allowing men students 
to entertain women visitors in their 
rooms during certain hours. This 
rule permits women free access to 
the men's dormitories between the 
hours of "4 and 7 p.m. weekdays 
with longer hours on week-ends." 
All had been going well until a 
scandal threatened to shatter the 
traditions of the staid old, ivy- 
covered institution. 

Priviledge Abused 

It has come to light that this 
priviledge was abused by students 
to the extent that wild parties are 
sometimes held in the dormitories 
during these hours. 

Apparently the priviledge was 


Dry Cleaners

abused only by a minority but is 
respected by the majority, who 
would seem to be mature enough 
to conduct themselves in keeping 
with the responsibility which the 
trust imposes. 

This matter has caused a contro- 
versy in colleges and universities 
across the country. It has aroused 
two diametrically opposed attitudes 
among the students. For this rea- 
son the "Current Sauce" decided to 
interview a number of students on 
the Northwestern campus to ascer- 
tain what the prevailing attitude 
is on this controversial topic. The 
interviews went about like this: 


Surprisingly enough it was the 
boys we querried who had reser- 
vations concerning a rule of this 
nature here. 

Among the co-eds there seems 
to be a conflict of opinions. Some 
girls appear to feel there is no 
danger of things happening as long 
as the girl is mature and has the 
proper self-respect. 

There is another feminine view- 
point. One girl summed it up thus- 
ly: "The rule is disgusting and 
fosters immorality." 

One far-sighted male said, "the 
situation is too dangerous." Ano- 
ther thought the rule was unneces- 
sary for "there are always cars." 
(The interviewer didn't question 
him further). 

More and Better 

An anomymous faculty member 
said, "I'm in favor of more and 
better ones," (wild parties that is). 

One pretty blond co-ed was in- 
censed at the idea of girls visiting 
boys' rooms because she feels "that 
if a boy wants to see a girl he can 
go to her dormitory. It isn't neces- 

sary for her to visit his." 

Another male thought it was all 
right "as long as it goes no further 
than just visiting." (About this 
time the interviewer was beginning 
to wonder what had become of the 
hardy (?) breed of red-blooded 
American males. However the 
question was soon answered in the 
form of a local athlete. When ques- 
tioned about the females visiting 
mens dormitories he was in com- 
plete agreement with the idea. As 
he put it, "I like it (the idea) be- 
cause it is good for public relations. 
I think they should have it here." 

The opinion of one young man 
summed up the whole controversy. 
"Why not?" was his first reaction. 
After thinking for a minute he 
said: "It would be like a football 
game without penalities for off- 
sides, backfield in motion, or illegal 
use of hands. I'm all for it."

It is an applied course as well 
as a technical course. A study of 
the identification, morphology, phy-

Special to the Sauce 

The second concert in the artist 
series brought to Natchitoches the 
most imaginative program of dance 
and music that some of us have 
ever seen or heard. The perform- 
ance was especially inspiring to 
dance and music students who are 
still discussing and comparing their 
impressions of it. 

"Dancing," says Merce Cunning- 
ham, "can and does evoke all sorts 
of individual responses in the 
single spectator." This, then, is the 
response of a single spectator. 

The program began with COLL- 
AGE III, a solo by Mr. Cunning- 
ham. It was an introspective piece 
in which the choreographer walked, 
leaped, focused his gaze into the 
distance, rolled in contractions on 
the floor, and even borrowed the 
jete en tournant of ballet, all dy- 
namic and unique dance move- 

Second Dance 

The second dance, SEPTET, was 
performed by the choreographer 
with the three women and two 
other men who make up his dance 
company. This seemed to be a sa- 
tire on the kind of ballet in which 
the gentlement and ladies constant- 
ly change partners, dash on and 
off stage without purpose, or gaze 
at imaginary sights somewhere in 
the wings. At one point Merce 
Cunningham lured a lady away 
from her partner. We expected him 
to promenade her, ballet style. In- 
stead they just shook hands and 
she returned to her partner. Ano- 
ther amusing bit was Mr. Cunning- 
ham's covering his face with his 
hands, then uncovering it to show 
an exaggerated expression often 
worn by ballet dancers. 

liyrically and beautifully by Merce 
Cunningham and Carolyn Brown. 

Although Mr. Cunningham believes 
sicthat music and dance exist inde- 
pendently of each other, "jointly 
experienced in the length of time 
they take up and divide," the music 
and dance here seemed closely cor- 

Final Work 

The final work was called 
STORY. The point of departure for 
this "story," as Mr. Cunningham 
explained to some students, was 
an audition for a play. The dancers' 
characterizations were determined 
by the bits of costumes they wore 
over their leotards and tights. 
Their movements varied with the 
props they handled (a clothes dry- 
er containing beach balls) or with 
the space at their disposal (the 
magnificent depth of our double 
stage lighted from two sides). 
Each dancer seemed to play his 
role until he had exhausted its pos- 
sibilities and had to be carried off 
stage. Later he would return in a 
different piece of costume and try 
out a different role. There was 
humour as well as beauty in this 
fascinating work. The loveliest 
movement was given to Carolyn 
Brown and Viola Farber when, in 
yellow leotards and tights, they did 
slow falls and intricate adagio 
movements on the floor. 

David Tudor, who performed in 
all numbers except the first, is an 
extraordinary pianist who special- 
izes in the performance of the most 
advanced contemporary music. 
John Cage, who is muscial director 
for the company, is one of the most 
prominent "avant garde" compos- 
ers in America and has had a con- 
siderable influence on younger 
composers both here and in Eu-

Did We Pay Proper Respect? 

This week the "Sauce" received the following letter which 
aptly states our editorial opinion on the subject at hand. It bore 
the signatures of Diane Cary Baker and Beverly Voigt. It fol- 
lows in full. 

"Mr. Editor: 

"The most tragic death of our late President, with whom 
a probable Southern majority disagreed on major issues, was 
no less shattering because of such disagreements. He was a 
great leader of the world's greatest country and few deny a 
deep feeling of respect for him, the leader and the politician. 

"When we, however, sometimes stop usual activities for 
winning a single ball game, yet continue classes almost as 
normal after our President is assasinated, we do not appear to 
be mature, nor in the least patriotic American citizens. 

"College students are more capable of being motivated by 
such events as the death of their President than they are ob- 
viously given credit for. When numerous Northwestern stu- 
dents suggested to the administration that we discontinue 
classes for a single day to mourn the President's death and 
show in our own meager way our respect for Mr. Kennedy, we 
were denied ample opportunity of showing patriotic sorrow. 
We asked a day of mourning, but our request was not granted. 
President Lyndon Johnson asked a day of mournful tribute, 
but his request was not granted. 

"It is true that the world did not stop its eternal spin be- 
cause Mr. Kennedy expired. It is also true, however, that most 
United States citizens felt pain in continuing as usual. Not only 
would it have been a fitting small tribute for NSC students to 
close their textbooks for the entire day, but it would have 
shown us to be sincerely respectful of the highest office we 
offer a U.S. citizen. 

"Anyway, most students found it impossible to think of 
school matters at the time of the President's death and burial, 
so shocking was the tragedy. As Johnson, the English writer 
has stated, 'While grief is fresh, every attempt to divert only 

"We find it hard to understand why our feelings were 
stifled by the administration. The administration apparently 
not only considered us immature, but obviously belittled the 
death of the President of the United States of America. 

"This failure to permit us paying due respect to a great 
man will always be a blight on our memories of NSC. 

" 'Youth is certainly not devoid of intelligence; it 

sees through shams with sharp and terrible eyes.' 

— H. L. Mencken"

How Did You React? 


What is this generation coming 
to? Friday, Nov. 22, Pres. John 
Kennedy was assassinated. He was 
a human being; he was president 
of the U. S. He was unwillingly, 
without consideration, deprived of 
his life. 

This same Friday I witnessed 
some of the most un-American 
activites possible. The dance in 
the women's gym was held as sche- 
duled. Was this an act of mourn- 
ing? Students were drinking as if 
in celebration. Was this an act of 
mourning? The theaters were 
packed. Again I ask, was this an 
act of mourning?Did the people 
taking part in these activites 
realize what had happened? 

As a Southerner I disagreed with 
some of the policies of the late 
president. This disagreement cre- 
ated no ill feelings for the man, 
nor did it create any disrespect 
for the office which he held. 

I have pity on the people who 
took part in those AMORAL ac- 
tivites. What will they tell their 
children 20 years from now when 
they are asked what they did on 
that tragic date? 

Stop and think. How did you re- 
act the day of our president's as-

What Was Your Reaction? 

Dear Editor: 

Time: 12:35 p.m., Friday, Nov. 
22, 1963 

Scene: A dormitory room 

Cast: This writer and opponent, 
deeply engrossed in a game of 
Chess. One student reading a pa- 
per. Two students observing game. 


1st Student: Ya'll notice how 
clear this picture of Kennedy is 
in the "Shreveport Times?" 

2nd Student: That a picture of 
him in Dallas? 

1st Student: Yeah. 

Opponent: Check! 

3rd Student: (Runs into room

news, Kennedy's been shot. 

Writer: You're kidding? 

1st Student: (Laughing) Is he 

3rd Student: No. He was shot in 

the head in Dallas. 

2nd Studejnt: (Laughing) That'll

Writer: What happened? 

3rd Student: He's in a hospital 
right now. 

2nd Student: Hell! I hope that sor- 
ry dies. It'll be good for 

him. (General Laughter) 

Students, I witnessed this re- 
action. What was yours? Were you 
one of the ones in the field house 
or anywhere else that experienced 
this type of reaction? Or did you 
stop and think about the serious- 
ness of this henious crime. 

Most of us have had the free- 
doms of America handed to us 
without having to earn them. We 
have taken them for granted. We 
did not have to fight in World 
Wars I and H. We barely remem- 
ber the Korean Conflict. 

We sit back in our soft chairs 
and look at the rest of the world 
with critical eyes. We see the as- 
sassination of Viet Nam's Pres- 
ident Diem and say it was right, 
as they wanted to achieve "De- 
mocracy." The end justifies the 

We say to ourselves, "Look at 
those fools. This doesn't happen in 
America. They don't have the pro- 
tective mantle of Democracy in 
their countries." 

Then it happens. The Chief Ex- 
ecutive of the U.S. is shot down in 
cold-blooded murder in a large 
metropolitan city in the South. 

Our forefathers fought and died 
for a country where "All men are 
created equal." For a nation where 
freedom lives. Freedom for an in-

NSC's tribute to the late Pres. 
Kennedy was fitting and proper. 
Probably no president since Lin-

the South. 

But, whether you agreed or dis- 
agreed with him, you'll have to ad- 
mit that he was a man of courage, 
determination and fortitude — qual- 
ities we seldom see now adays.

lieve in what America stands for,

Nature Pays Respect 

Nov. 25, 1963 

Mr. Gentry, 

This morning, through a spec- 
tacular sunrise, the last of the 
great dignitaries, Mother Nature, 
paid her last respects to John F. 
Kennedy on the day of his funeral. 
Those of you who saw it, perhaps 
failed to attach the symbolism 
that I did to this sunrise. To me it 
represented the feelings of the en- 
tire free world. 

The black sky of the early morn- 
ing seemed to erupt into sentimen- 
tal splendor. First, over the hori- 
zon a dim pink haze, then larger 
and larger it grew turning deep 
red in color as it spread across the 
sky, until at length it presented, 
to the observer, the picture of 
splattered blood, the uselessly 
splattered blood of the President. 

In it's magnitude, the sunrise 
comfortingly informed the observ- 
ers that he was not alone in his 
grief, but only a tiny speck on an 
ocean of sorrow. 

My only prayer is that he did 
not die in vain, that if though dis- 
liked in the South as he was, all 
people will strive to keep alive 
his great memory. 

If I knew that if I could be grant- 
ed one wish, and that wish would 
come true, it would be to come 
back from the grave 100 years 
from now and find John F. Ken- 
nedy in his rightful place-not by 
the side of Abe Lincoln, but in 
front of him-for this man will be- 
come the greatest president who 
ever lived.

Football season has come to a 
close, and it might be a good thing. 
The Demons did end out on a win- 
ning note though. It was a good 
way to end the season, as South- 
eastern had a slim chance to end 
up in a tie for the GSC crown. 
Northwestern's win ended this 
chance, showing that the Demons 
did have the material. So as the old

Debut Of Demons 
Spoiled By Savages 

by Rick Woodson 
Sauce Sports Writer 

Southeastern Oklahoma's Savages 
spoiled the 1963-64 debut of North- 
western State's basketball squad 
by stopping the Demons 89-79 Mon- 
day, Nov. 25, and 92-79 the next 

In the first game, the lead 
changed hands eight times, and 
the score was tied on six occasions. 

SCC lead by 41-37 at the half, 
and the Demons closed the gap to 
42-40 to open the second half. 
The Savages moved out in front by 
eight points with 12:36 remaining 
in the game, and NSC was never 
able to overtake them. The De- 
mons did come from 16 back with 
slightly under 10 minutes to go to 
make it 70-63, and came within six, 
81-75, with 1:48 remaining. The 
rally fell short , however, and the 
boys from the Sooner state handed 
the Demons their first defeat. 

Clark Hits For 23 

Freshman David Clark hit for 
23 points in his college debut, and 
and Tommy Mathis, all Gulf States 
Conference last year, canned 17. 
Wayne Cobb and Mike Martin 
tossed in 28 and 26 points respec- 
tively, and Tommy Hedrick added 
15 to pace the Oklahomans. 

"in Tuesday night's clash, Mathis 
popped the nets for 28 points, 
Billy Ray 12, and Clark 10, but the 
Demons again fell by a 92-79 score. 

The Savages, led by Elvin Swee- 
ten, hit a torrid 63 percent from 
the field, while the Demons man- 
aged 37 percent. Martin contri- 
buted 23 markers to the hot-shoot- 
ing Savages' cause. 

Demons Upset Lions 
For Season's Final 

Northwestern Stated Demons 
vaulted from the Gulf States Con- 
ference cellar, and finished the 
1963 football season on a happy 
note by upsetting Southeastern 
Louisiana's LLons b y 13-7. The 
game was played Nov. 23. 

The Demons used a steady 
ground game, and a'/i adequate 
defence in rolling to their fourth 
win in 10 outings and second con- 
quest in five league contest. The 
victory put NSC in .fourth place 
in the conference. 

Grover Colvin pounced on an 
SLC fumble on the Lion's one and 
Ed Horton cracked in from there. 
The conversion attempt was wide, 
to give the Demons a 6-0 first quar- 
ter advantage. 

In the second canto, the Demons 
marched 55 yards in just six plays, 
with Glenn Talbert getting the final 
25 on a fine run. Wayne Walker's 
kick was good, and it was NSC by 
13-0 at the half. 

The Lions got their lone tally in 
the third period when Dick Coth- 
ern passed to Sherry Brannan for 
the TD and the conversion was 
made good. The score stood at 13-7, 
and that's how it ended.

Demons Drop Game 
To SFA Monday 

Stephen F. Austin made it three 
victories in a row as they dropped 
the Demons of Northwestern State 
College Monday night by a score 
of 84-71. The loss was the third of 
the season for the Demons. 

Northwestern lost the lead early 
in the game and never regained it 
as the Lumberjacks put on a fine 
display of accuracy in their field 
goals. It was enough to put them 
ahead at halftime 47-34. 

SFA out rebounded the Demons 
67-58 with Jerry McLaurin pulling 
in 11 to lead the Demons. Virgil 
Bray was high point man for North- 
western as he hit for 16 points. He 
was followed by Tommy Mathis 
who had 12. 

The Demons play host to Nicholls 
State College here on Saturday 
night with tip off time slated at 
8 p.m. McNeese will then travel 
here Thursday, Dec. 12, with a 
game slated for 7:30 p.m.

What is time? 
Time is a parent praying, 
A child playing. 
It is a man dying, 
woman crying, 
bell ringing, 
bird singing; 
duck swimming; 
A sky dimming. 
Time is Christmas dawning, 
An Easter morning. 
A June marriage; 
A horse-drawn carriage; 
A dog running; 
A turtle sunning; 
A leaf falling; 
A mother calling; 
Wind blowing; 
j Water flowing . . . 
Time is everything . . . but what is 

Time is the only thing that time 
doesn't change. 

Mountains crumble, oceans rumble; 

Rivers mumble, nations tumble. 

All things are changed by time 

. . . but, what is time? 

Time is patient. Time is constant. 
Time is ever present. 

Time is forever. Time is eternal 

. . . but what is time? 

Time is immortal. Time is indes- 
tructable. Time is impregnable. 

Time is ivincible. Time is indomi- 
table. Time is unyielding. 

Time is unfailable. Time is infinite. 
Time has no boundries. 

Time is immeasurable. Time is age- 
less . . . but what is time? 

Time is intangible; yet time iff 
more real than any tangible 
thing in existence. No one can 
hide from time. Time effects 
everyone. No one must work. No 
one must eat or sleep or walk 
or talk. No one must live, but 
everyone must grow old. Time 
can't be eluded . . . but, what is 

Time conquers all. Time knows 
all. Time creates all. Time de- 
stroies all. Time can't be stopped. 
Time rolls on . . and on . . and

During his speech, Townsend

for power, wealth and civilization 
comes from agriculture. When one 
farmer can feed his family and 
another family, then the other por-

now enjoy." 

Speaking on agricultural issues, 
Townsend said, "Price support by 
the government has been labeled 
as 'similar to a charity drive,' with 
most of the money going into the 
pockets of the promoters."

(Author of "Rally Round the Flag, Boys!" 
and "Barefoot Boy With Cheek".) 


The time has come to think of Christmas shopping, for the 
Yuletide will be upon us quicker than you can say Jack Robin- 
son. (Have you ever wondered, incidentally, about the origin 
of this interesting phrase "Quicker than you can say Jack 
Robinson"? Well sir, the original saying was French— "Pius 
vile que de dire Jacques Robespierre." Jack Robinson is, as every- 
one knows, an Anglicization of Jacques Robespierre who was, 
as everyone knows, the famous figure from the French Revolu- 
tion who, as everyone knows, got murdered in his bath by 
Danton, Murat, Caligula, and Al Capone. 

(The reason people started saying "Quicker than you can 
say Jacques Robespierre"— or Jack Robinson, as he is called in 
English-speaking countries like England, the U.S., and Cleve- 
land—is quite an interesting little story. It seems that Robes- 
pierre's wife, Georges Sand, got word of the plot to murder 
her husband in his bath. All she had to do to save his life was 
call his name and warn him. But, alas, quicker than she could 
say Jacques Robespierre, she received a telegram from her old 
friend Frederic Chopin who was down in Majorca setting lyrics 

all 6k k4 io do m6 call te me 

to his immortal "Warsaw Concerto." Chopin said he needed 
Georges Sand's help desperately because he could not find a 
rhyme for "Warsaw." Naturally, Georges could not refuse 
such an urgent request. 

(Well sir, off to Majorca went Georges, but before she left, 
she told her little daughter Walter that some bad men were 
coming to murder Daddy in his bath. She instructed Walter 
to shout Robespierre's name the moment the bad men arrived. 
But Walter, alas, had been sea-bathing that morning on the 
Riviera, and she had come home with a big bag of salt water 
taffy, and when the bad men arrived to murder Robespierre, 
Walter, alas, was chewing a wad of taffy and could not get her 
mouth unstuck in time to shout a warning. Robespierre, alas, 
was murdered quicker than you could say Jacques Robespierre 
—or Jack Robinson, as he is called in English-speaking countries. 

(There is, I am pleased to report, one small note of cheer 
in this grisly tale. When Georges Sand got to Majorca, she did 
succeed in helping Chopin find a rhyme for "Warsaw" as every- 
one knows who has heard those haunting lyrics: 

In the fair town of Warsaw, 

Which Napoleon's horse saw, 

Singing cockles and mussels, alive alive o!) 
But I digress. 

We were speaking of Christmas gifts. What we all try to 
find at Christmas is, of course, unusual and distinctive gifts for 
our friends. May I suggest then a carton of Marlboro Cigarettes? 

What? You are astonished? You had not thought of Marlboros 
as unusual? You had regarded them as familiar, reliable smokes 
whose excellence varied not one jot nor tittle from year to year? 

True. All true. But all the same, Marlboros are unusual be- 
cause every time you try one, it's like the first time. The flavor 
never palls, the filter never gets hackneyed, the soft pack is 
ever a new delight, and so is the Flip Top box. Each Marlboro 
is a fresh and pristine pleasure, and if you want all your friends 
to clap their hands and cry, "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa

set in Washington Square in New 
York City, 1850. 

The action of the play centers 
on Catherine Sloper, the shy, emo- 
tionally unstable and exceedingly 
unhappy daughter of a wise, 
wealthy, prominent, and domineer- 
ing New York physician. 

After a whirlwind courtship Ca- 
therine finds herself for the first 
time in love and is engaged tp 
Morris Townsend, a gentlemen of 
neither wealth nor position. All 
of this has been done under the 
violent protest of Catherine's 
father, who strongly suspects that 
Townsend is not in love with his 
daughter at all, but with the money 
she expects to inreit. 

Overall Polish 

The cast handled itself with a 
depth of characterization, preci- 
sioned timing, and overall polish 
not usually found on non profes- 
sional stages, especially in a play 
of this type. 

Particular acting laurals go to 
Gloria Damico, who played Cather- 
ine; Billy Toland, seen as Dr. Aus- 
tin Sloper; and Bobby Ray Welch, 
as Morris Townsend. 

They were supported admirably 
by a cast including Wavelyn Mur- 
ray, Alice Ann Ragsdale, Rosalie 
Lott, Susan Wall, Wayne Martin, 
Susann Gravier, Annabel Blackis- 
ton and Lavell Cole. 

College Has Part 
In Xmas Festival 

Historic Natchitoches was the 
scene of Louisiana's largest Christ- 
mas festival last Saturday. It was 
the city's 37th annual presentation 
of spectacular fireworks, and cli- 
maxed with the turning on of 125- 
000 multi-colored lights. 

The Ark-La-Tex and even such 
states as New York and Nebraska 
were represented when thousands 
of spectators watched the hour-long 
display of over $2,000 worth of 
ground and air fireworks set off 
on the banks of Cane River Lake 
in downtown Natchitoches. 

Northwestern took part in the 
afternoon parade. Over 20 bands, 
numerous beauty queens, drill u- 
nits, and floats combined to pro- 
duce the 67 unit parade. 

Following the parade, activities 
began on the Fleur de Lis stage 
on the river bank, and a water 
show was presented on the lake by 
the Caddo Ski Bees. NSC gymnasts 
and Demonettes and the Impacts 
band were included in the after- 
noon's entertainment. 

The fireworks display began at 
6:30 p.m. and the city Christmas 
lights were turned on at approx- 
imately 7:30, to end the day's activ-

Minor Repairs Needed On Campus 

In the past ten years North- 
western State College has 
made great strides in physical 
improvement of the campus. 
Almost all roadways on the 
campus are now hardsurfaced, 
and adequate drainage is sup- 
plied in most areas. 

Still, however, students who 
reside in Vets Town are daily 
faced with unpaved and deep- 
rutted roadways. These are a 
menace to car axles, wheels, 
and shoes in wet weather. The 
photo above reveals that cor- 
rection of the situation is in 
order; it has been uncorrected 
long enough. Earl Booker, a 
Vets Town resident, points to 
one of the deep ruts. 

Also, though drainage is 
good, the drains themselves 
are a menace in various places. 
The other photo shows Bob 
Crone looking at a drain near 
the Campus Security office 
which is several inches lower 
than the road surface. It has 
resulted in damages to several 
automobile tires, and it ap- 
pears that little work would be necessary to raise its level. 

Such things as these, though they may seem minor in the 
light of such matters as adequate housing, cause sufficient 
complaints to merit repair. 

Little things mean a great deal when uncorrected, and mean 
more when they are. The campus as a whole would be better 
if several minor improvements were made, and students — es- 
pecially those who have been faced with damaged autos — 
would certainly be appreciative of these corrections.

To The 

Summers Is Astonished 

Mr. Robert Gentry 

N.S.C. Current Sauce 
Natchitoches, Louisiana 

Dear Editor, 

Upon reading your column, 'Edi- 
tor's Easy Chair," in the Nov. 22 
edition of the "Current Sauce," 
referring to your personal attack 
upon Joe Vidmar, I was astonished 
to learn that a paper, with a pre- 
viously untarnished, open-minded, 
ethically sound reputation, had 
suddenly degenerated into, what 
some may regard as libelous, mud- 
slinging, and totally irresponsible 
in its views and leadership. 

In your column, you used your 
position as editor to maliciously 
attack and defame the character 
and reputation of a student. In do- 
ing so, I think you violated prac- 
tically every phase of logic and 
ethics that your position and pro- 
fession has long been noted for. I 
feel that no action, of any type, 
form, at any time or place, on the 
part of anyone on this campus, 
in the capacity of a student, faculty 
member or staff member, would 
warrent the type of attack that 
you, personally, saw fit to bring 
upon Mr. Vidmar. 

At this point, I would like to 
mention that I personally do not 
know Joe Vidmar and that I too, 
like you Mr. Gentry, may not a- 
gree with his ideas, beliefs and 
convictions, but you may rest as- 
sured that the entire situation 
could have been handled in a more 
gentlemanlike manner. 

The very fact that you called 
Mr. Vidmar a, "Skunk, Preverted 
egotist, Plagiarist, Two-Bit Philo- 
sopher and a Bull-of-the-woods," 
would indicate that you apparently 
were at a loss in considering how 
to handle the matter. 

Since the "Sauce" has always 
welcomed criticism, I hope that 
my comments will not go unno-

Class Absences Policy 

To the Editor: 

As students of Northwestern we 
have a question concerning our 

As has been said many times be- 
fore, "Are we children or are we 
adults?". By this we refer to the 
policy of class absences and ex- 
cuses. We know that this policy is 
set by the State Board of Educa- 
tion, BUT, this ruling carried to 
a ridiculous extreme we feel, 
could be dealt with a little less 
fanatically here. An example can 
be found in the foreign language 
labs. If you receive four unexcused 
absences in the lab then you auto- 
matically fail the lab (for which 
you receive no credit anyway!) 
and the foreign language you are 
taking. ( . 

The deans present a similar pro- 
blem. Two of the newer deans 
seem to be the worst offenders. 
Perhaps they're only trying to do a 
good job, but. . . At one dean's of- 
fice you can't even check on the 
number of cuts you have. On the 
door a sign tells you to go see your 
individual teachers to find out how 
many you have. Who has the 
time to go running all over the 
campus looking for teachers?) An- 
other dean is very reluctant to ac- 
cept written excuses from a stu- 
dent. At all the deans' offices is 
the problem of getting an infirm- 
ary excuse (all night in the in- 
firmary just for a headache, upset 
stomach, and/or diarrhea?). It's 
really ridiculous when you think 
about it, isn't it? Our administra- 
tion tells us that absences must be 
controlled, but isn't it funny that 
larger schools (L.S.U., etc.) don't 
seem to have any trouble? 

If a student can pass his course 
without going to the class he 
should be allowed to do so, or is

almost fell down. She looked down

We were walking by the library 
the other night and saw a lass 
doing something to a Camelia 
bush. It seemed interesting (what 
she was doing) so we walked up 
a little closer. She was plucking 
some of the buds off the bush. 

We asked why, and she explain-

buds are growing in the same 
place, they won't mature as they 
should. She said that only one bud 
should be growing on a stem, thus 
producing a healthy, beautiful

When you look up at that big,

how it controls the oceans, then 

Northwestern just an over-sized 
high school? 

Controls conceivably are needed 
for freshmen until they learn the 
ropes at college, but to continue 
the same juvenile policies with 
upperclassmen who are supposedly 
adults is ridiculous. It might help 
if the deans spent more time im-

Dead Fly In Milk 

Dear Editor: 

I regret very much to inform you 
and the management of NSC cafe- 
terias (St. Denis), that the food 
does not measure up to standards. 
At supper on Dec. 9, I found a 
"dead fly" in my milk. Now, every 
time I eat I do so with fear, lest 
I contract some dread disease. 

Of course I do not expect food 
of outstanding quality for the price 
I pay. But even at this cost, whole- 
some food could be furnished. 

Perhaps you would be interested 
to know that many of us (students) 
have not enjoyed our meals in the 
cafeteria for some days now. We 
sincerely hope that the manage- 
ment and staff at St. Denis will 
give this matter their attention in 
the future. 

A graduate student 

you realize why it has little control 
over homo sapiens. 

"There was never any yet that 
wholly could escape love, 
and never shall there be any, 
never so long as beauty shall be, 
never so long as eyes can see."

Recently in a certain student 
weekly publication at Northwes- 
tern State College, there appear- 
ed an opinion poll concerning a 
regulation at Harvard permitting 
coeds to visits the rooms of men 
stucjente during certain hours. 

Opinions varied, but the trend 
of thought was in most cases ad- 
verse to the idea. One girl even 
considered visits within the rooms 
of men students "disgusting". 

One Sunday afternoon, I had a 
young lady to visit me in my dorm 
room. We entertained ourselves 
listening to records and convers- 

This is a true experience, with 
no immorality, and nothing dis- 
gusting attached. 

It didn't happen at a large East- 
ern university. It was in my room 
at Prudhomme hall. 

Only A Dirty Mind 

Only a dirty mind could make the 
visit into something disgusting. 
Unless.of course that person had 
no visitors during Mom and Dad 

Perhaps in that case, this could 
be called disgusting, but certainly 
not immoral. 

What I am leading up to is a 
proposal. I feel that the Student 
Council should petition the ad- 
ministration for an open bouse 
so that students may visit in their 
dorms on Sunday afternoons. 

Like most ideas proposed, this 
one will probably be lost in com- 
mittee — if it is brought up at all. 
Our Student Council unfortunatly 
has to tread softly in matters of 

The idea of student goverment 
at NSC at times seems futile. They 
have too little say in matters 
which directly concern students.

Council is reminiscent of a father 
saying to his son, "You connot 
have a bicycle unless you learn 
to ride it. You might hurt your-

FROM rn£ 

BY t/£A*y 

This is Pat McMeel subbing for 
"Brill Baby", as we affectionately 
call him here at the "Sauce", who 
has been called to Shreveport this 

With football season officicially 
over for the Purple and white, 
this column now turnes to the 
hardwood and Coach Huey Cran- 
ford's 1963-64 basketball squad. 

So far the Demons have taken to 
the floor four times in games 
against Stephen F. Austin, Nicholls 
State College and McNeese State 

In the two game series against 
the Savages of Okla., the young 
Demon squad showed a lot of hus- 
tle before going down twice to the 
Sooner sharpshooters 89-79. 

Displaying what could be one of 
the most potent teams in East Tex- 
as, the Lumberjacks of SFA 
handed the purple and white their 
third loss of the season 84-71. Vir- 
gil Bray and Tommy Mathis were 
high point men in this game with 
16 and 12 points respectivly for 
the Demons. 

As stated above, football season 
is over and now coaches and sports 
writers pick the best men of the 
lot to the mythical All-Conference 
or All-American team. Sometimes, 
for one reason or another, the best 
of the lot are NOT represented. 
Such is the case of the AP (Asso- 
ciated Press) Little All-American 
checklist for this year. 

Point one : Not one GSC member 
received any recognition, not even 
honorable mention. Men like Sam- 
my Joe Odom, Tommy Thompson, 
Charles Anastasio, and Darrell Les- 
ter of McNeese, and Billy Laird 
of Louisiana Tech certainly are 
deserving of some credit. One 
sportswriter has stated that Mc- 
Neese could have played and per- 
haps even beaten several of the 

weaker teams of the Southeastern 

Point two: Appalachian State of 
Boone, N.C. came to Natchitoches 
with one of the strongest rushing 
defenses in the small college brac- 
ket. NSC was held to a mere 310 
yards rushing by this team, and 
NSC was not the strongest team 
in the GSC. 

One fact has been known for 
years, the Gulf States Conference 
has been neglected nationally in 
both football and basketball. 

Point three: What Can Be Done 
to correct this situation? If the 
coaches of the Gulf States Con* 
ference would name one man 
to act as sports publicist-statisti- 
cian who would write and mail 
stories to national outlets and pro- 
vide national poll members infor- 
mation on individual teams and 
players in the GSC, and provide 
yearly records and statistics in all 
sports in the GSC, then and only 
then, might the GSC get the re- 
cognition it so well deserves. 

Roy Gentry, All-GSC end for the 
Demons, was awarded the Alonzo 
Stagg award following the final 
game of the season in NSC's tri- 
umph over the Lions of South- 
eastern. Gentry has hauled in 16 
passes for 231 yards and three of 
them for touchdowns. The form- 
er Natchitoches High star garner- 
ed All-State, All-American, and 
lineman of the year awards in his 
senior year in high school. 

Other members of the football 
squad this year who proved their 
value on the field are Kenny Guil- 
lot, guard; Allen Plummer, guard; 
Tommy Mitchell, center; and Mol- 
colm Hodnett, guard. Many others 
could also be named b
